    Gasification of municipal solid waste (MSW) is an attractive alternative fuel production process for the treatment of solid waste as it has several potential benefits over traditional combustion of MSW. Syngas produced from the gasification of MSW can be utilized as a gas fuel being combusted in a conventional burner or in a gas engine to utilize the heat or produce :// /gasification-of-municipal-solid-waste.   Find out about business support for events cancelled due to COVID Temporary Support for Events Funding ment of Economic Development.

The report gives results of an evaluation of destruction in two different high-efficiency boilers (as an alternative to landfill disposal) of waste (a rendering plant byproduct, yellow grease) found to be contaminated by PCBs from a transformer leak. (The PCB content--under ppm--determines the disposal method under 40 CFR Part ) At the first boiler: (1) logistics and fuel handling  › EPA Home.
