Abstract The Research Program entitled, 'Test Firing Refuse Derived Fuel in an Industrial Coal-Fired Boiler' evaluates the performance of an industrial boiler when co-firing coal and RDF. An optimum boiler operating load and RDF feed rate was determined for the boiler tested. Boiler efficiencies and stack emissions were also studied when co-firing RDF and coal. The economics of preparing and utilizing RDF in the boiler are evaluated. The operational characteristics of the RDF feed system and the reliability and practicability of receiving, storing, and firing RDF at an industrial operation are reported.
