Other Incineration Systems for Solid Wastes
The solids of concern in this chapter include ‘‘trash’’ (waste usually containing a large
fraction of paper and cardboard), relatively dry food waste, waste wood, agricultural
residues (bagasse, corn cobs) and brush, organic containing bulky wastes (automobile
bodies, rail cars), etc. Many of these solids include substantial amounts of noncombustible
(wire, steel banding, drums, nails, as well as ‘‘ash’’). ‘‘Standard’’ or reference waste
compositions and incinerator classiﬁcations have been developed by the Incinerator
Institute of America (Tables 1 and 2) for the speciﬁcation of on-site incinerator systems.
