Cost Evaluation of a Metal and Mineral Recovery Process for Treating Municipal Incinerator Residues.
NTIS: PB 206 627 :41 pages
An evaluation is presented of the Bureau of Mines process for the recovery of metal and mineral values from municipal incinerator residues. This process employs standard mineral beneficiation techniques and is operating on a pilot-plant scale of 1,000 pounds of incinerator residue feed per hour. Products from this separation process include ferrous, aluminum, and copper-zinc scrap and colorless and colored glass. Cost estimates were prepared for four plant sizes. It is assumed that the separation plant is located adjacent to a municipal incinerator. Provision is made, however, for part of the residue feed to be delivered by truck so that one large separation plant can be used for residue from more than one incinerator.
