Abstract:

Recently promulgated EPA guidelines on solid waste source separation, mandatory for Federal agencies, have placed a high priority on the test and evaluation of alternative approaches and of additional costs attributable to source separation. A four-month long test at the Naval Construction Battalion Center, Port Hueneme, California, called for basewide voluntary source separation of solid waste into two categories during 1976. The test was oriented toward waste heat recovery from the combustibles for steam generation which, although at odds with the EPA guidelines for source separation, is in the best interest of energy conservation since Navy shore facilities typically use steam for base heating needs. Considered a successful test, indicating the workability and cost-effectiveness of source separation, it generated a large amount of information on the various technical, cost and human factors associated with source separation.
