This paper reviews the characteristics of the major energy products recoverable from solid waste, the marketability of these products, the potential markets, and the status of the technology for recovery. The first section considers the fuels--solid, liquid, and gaseous--that can be created out of solid waste. The second section examines steam and electricity, two other forms in which the energy from solid waste can be sold. In the final section, the various systems and energy products are compared.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 30-31).
