Abstract:

This report discusses the sensitivity of heat recovery incinerator HRI costbenefits to various techno-economic parameters associated with the HRI computer model. These sensitivity data are presented in a form to aid in the conceptual design of the optimum HRI facility for a given Navy activity. The following techno-economic parameters are listed in order of their expected importance, considering both variance and sensitivity, to costbenefit criteria of the HRI computer model solid waste heating value, boiler thermal efficiency, energy inflation rate with respect to general inflation, cost of conventionally generated steam, solid waste disposal cost, differential landfill inflation of disposal cost, capital cost, and ratio of ash to waste input. Naval Facilities Engineering Command policy regarding HRI construction at Navy activities is to seek alternative waste management opportunities such as the use of nearby resource recovery facilities that have been financed and erected by private operators or civic entities.
