Information

Description:

This report provides an evaluation of a two-phased demonstration program conducted for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Municipal Solid Waste Innovative Technology Evaluation Program, and the results thereof, 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 this 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. This report was submitted in partial fulfillment of Cooperative Agreement 818238 under the partial sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This report covers a period from October 4, 1991, to April 19, 1992.
