Municipal Solid Waste Combustion Ash Co-disposal with Unburned Waste – Implications for ETLFs

Wednesday, February 13, 2019
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm EST

Drs. Yongho Sohn and Debbie Reinhart
University of Central Florida

During this online project kickoff, learn about the new EREF-funded research entitled “MSW Combustion Ash Co-Disposal with Unburned Waste – Implications for ETLFs.” This research will address the co-disposal of municipal solid waste (MSW) ash with unburned MSW, and the potential heat generating reactions that can lead to elevated landfill temperature. The overall objective of the research is to identify and document the elemental composition, phase constituents (e.g., crystalline structure) and chemical/electron state of the MSW ash to better understand its potential for heat release when co-disposed with unburned MSW. Findings from the proposed program will offer the solid waste industry guidance on improved waste co-disposal acceptability to minimize the occurrence of elevated landfill temperature. This presentation will provide an overview of the state of research related to this research, motivation, methodology and the expected outcomes that will benefit industry.

Attend this kickoff meeting to learn about the thermal responses of MSW ash and how to the characterization of this material can be used to predict the potential reactions that can occur with the co-disposal of ash with unburned MSW.

There is no cost to register, but registration will be limited.

NOTE: This kickoff meeting will take place online through GoToTraining.
