Abstract:

The study was initiated to evaluate the solid waste disposal problems at Red River Army Depot, Texarkana, TX, and to develop design criteria for disposal of solid waste generated on the base. The problem scope was expanded to include solid waste generated at Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant, Texarkana, TX, since both bases share a common landfill. A technology review was conducted, applicable standards were evaluated, and sampling and analysis of the waste streams was performed. Pyrolysis, power recovery incineration, and recycle and landfill techniques were examined. The abatement method selected for the ultimate disposal of waste was power recovery incineration. This decision was based on relative life-cycle costs of the alternatives considered. Design criteria were prepared for a power recovery incinerator complex utilizing parallel rotary kiln incinerators, a package boiler, and a scrubber. Author
