Abstract:

The 1976 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act encourages the recovery of material and waste derived fuels to the maximum extent practicable at federal facilities, while complying with all state and local requirements as well. The Navys Solid Waste research project is designed to identify and develop cost effective alternatives for meeting RCRA requirements. To meet this objective an immediate need of the project was to quantify and characterize the recoverable material contained in the Navy waste stream and to compile information on how these material are handled at typical Navy installations. The work was concentrated in two areas compiling and analyzing available data about Navy solid waste composition and generation, and developing a set of realistic descriptions of typical Navy solid waste handling practices. For waste composition and generator rate, data available from the NACWIS data base, including R4 surveys conducted under the direction of the Naval Environmental Support Office NESO, were compiled and analyzed. Navy facilities were listed in classes according to the amount of waste.
