The design illustrated is based on a classical fluid-bed system configuration which has been around for many years. MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE Figure 5. Details of fluid-bed incinerator. 49 50 SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT AND WASTE MINIMIZATION Infilco Degremont, Inc. O. Box 71390, Richmond, VA 23255-1390, telephone: 804-756-7600) markets a smokeless, odorless process to incinerate wastewater and other sludges. This nonhazardous technology, which meets or exceeds air quality emission regulations, is currently in use in the municipal and industrial markets.

The wastes are the aqueous precoat filter plus the wet filter cake. During the operation, the precoat is applied continuously at a rate of 1100 kg/hr. The filtrate is discharged to the sewer without any pretreatment. Solid filter cake waste (mycelia and filter aid) are generated at a rate of 1243 kg/hr. This waste is removed to an off-site landfill in 5- to 10-ton load shipments. All of the waste is considered to be nonhazardous. The solid filter cake waste is the largest waste stream generated by the process on a volume basis.

Coal-burning operations in the utility sector are prime examples of the efficient use of this technology. The schematics shown in Fig. 3 and 4 provide a summary of the basic steps involved in the burning operation. As with all combustion technologies, a solid waste residue or ash is left that ultimately must be disposed of. The vast majority of this residue winds up in landfills. MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE 45 Figure 3. Waterwall furnace for unprocessed MSW. Some installations perform shredding prior to burning to reduce the waste size.
