Satisfactory disposal of mounting quantities of municipal and industrial wastes is a problem of great national concern from the standpoint of both environmental pollution and conservation of natural resources. Pyrolysis techniques used by the Bureau of Mines as a means of studying the carbonization characteristics of coal have been applied successfully to convert municipal and industrial wastes into usable or more manageable forms without adding to environmental pollution. By pyrolysis at elevated temperatures, refuse materials can be converted to potentially useful solids, liquids, and gases. The gas produced in the process is more than enough to supply the reaction energy.
