Abstract:

This report addresses the economics of co-firing refuse derived fuel RDF in a pulverized coal boiler. The report specifies the type of RDF required, the type and cost of processing equipment to produce the RDF, the cost and type of modifications to the coal boiler, and the expected OM costs for the modified boiler. Life cycle economic analyses based on various RDF feed rates are used to determine the suitability of RDF use in a pulverized coal boiler. Author
