COMPOSITION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF MUNICIPAL INCINERATOR RESIDUES

The basic physical and chemical composition of municipal incinerator residues and their essential engineering properties are discussed. The analytic methods used in characterizing samples of incinerator residue from various sources are also discussed. Some unique characteristics of incinerator residue are identified, and the significance of these characteristics relative to the potential use of residue as construction material is outlined. A means for classifying the residues from municipal-scale incinerator operations is recommended. (Author)
