Abstract : In collaboration with the Joint Deployable Waste to Energy (JDW2E) Community of Interest (COI), the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), and the US Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC), Leidos developed test standards for waste-to-energy (WTE) systems applicable to Department of Defense (DOD) contingency bases. The benefits of using test standards are to 1) provide common test criteria to allow better comparison between systems, 2) ensure that key emissions characteristics of WTE systems are measured to better understand applicability to various regulatory or operational requirements, 3) ensure that key performance attributes are measured to better align WTE systems with appropriate applications, 4) establish baseline data for WTE systems that could be beneficial for future end users, and 5) identify common data gaps or areas for future research and development. The test standards prepared for this study provide the recommended materials and the proportion of those materials that can be used to simulate contingency base waste and identify universal criteria that should be measured and evaluated when testing WTE systems for contingency bases to include characterization and quantification of the feed, emissions (gas, liquid, and solids), consumables, and operations and performance metrics.
