WATERBORNE TRASH RECYCLING PLANT STUDY
The feasibility of waterborne trash recycling and energy recovery facilities was investigated for combinations of three locations and four processes. The three locations were Seattle, Washington (sheltered bay site); San Diego, California (open ocean); and St. Louis, Missouri (pierside). The four processes were production of coarse refuse-derived fuel (RDF); compressed fluff RDF; low BTU gas via the PUROX pyrolysis process; and electric power. Ferrous metal was also recovered from the waste. None of the combinations indicated a profit under current waste disposal costs at the three locations. Optimum combination was for St. Louis which was sufficiently close to the competitive range that it deserves serious consideration. Capital investment required for St. Louis was $32 million for a 1,000 ton/day waste processing facility, and a waste disposal charge of $13.71 per ton to break even.
