Abstract
Urban refuse that was mechanically separated at the federal Bureau of Mines Pilot Plant in College Park, Maryland, Was successfully evaluated for its fuel values using standard coal analysis methods. Analyses performed on refuse samples taken from five sample points included moisture, ash, sulfur, chlorine, and heating value. It was recommended that characterization of the combustible portion of urban refuse by standard coal analysis procedures should be widely adopted.
