Abstract:

A literature search was conducted to assess the feasibility of utilizing densified refuse-desired fuel d-RDF for the production of hot water and steam in Navy boilers. This report also includes the Air Force efforts in adapting d-RDF technology such as manufacturing processes, storage, shipping, and burning characteristics. Based on experiences in utilizing d-RDF to this date, the technology is available, the burning characteristics are very encouraging, and the economic feasibility would be enhanced with local production sites. Further developments in multi-fuel design specifications, and performance testing will promote the utilization of d-RDF. Author
