Operational and economic aspects of municipal solid waste recovery systems: Shredding and air classification
Resources and Conservation
This article examines the Ames Solid Waste Resource Recovery System which has been in operation since November of 1975. The shredding and air classification are each treated as a subsystem of the process. Labor and energy requirements and cost of processing a unit mass of refuse through each subsystem are examined. Observations are based on an analysis of the facility's operation from July 1977 through June 1978.
