Abstract The use of prepared solid waste as a supplementary fuel is being investigated by communities all over the country as a method for recovering energy from commercial and residential solid wastes. This document presents survey results that are intended to help local decision-makers in assessing the availability of electric utility boilers with potential for using prepared solid waste as supplementary fuel. For the major coal-burning States and the major urban centers, details are given for investor-owned and municipally-owned plants on the following items: (1) boiler characteristics; (2) energy requirements for electricity generation; (3) potential energy available from combustion of solid waste derived from specified areas around each plant; (4) typical transportation distances from the centers of waste generation to the plants, and (5) the potential waste-burning capacity per day of each boiler if solid waste replaced 10 percent of its fossil fuel.
Highlights Notes Surveys electric power plants in major coal burning states and urban centers for potential waste burning capacity as supplemental fuel.
