The report provides an evaluation of a two-phased demonstration program conducted of a recently developed method of sewage sludge management. This method, known as oxygen-enriched co-incineration, is intended to allow the co-combustion of dewatered sewage sludge with municipal solid waste in a waste-to-energy facility without affecting solid waste throughput capacity or facility operational characteristics. The report describes the demonstration program plan and the tests performed; assesses the execution of the demonstration program; provides the reported test results; and presents the results of an independent verification of the test results. Also evaluated in the report are the technical/operational, environmental regulatory/permitting, and economic implications of the commercial application of oxygen-enriched co-incineration. Finally, overall conclusions and recommendations are provided based on the evaluation.
