The City of Ames, IA (City) processes 220 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW) at their Arnold O. Chantland Resource Recovery System (RRS). This facility is depicted in Figure 1. The objectives of this facility have both an economic and an environmental component: to reduce the amount of MSW that is otherwise disposed in their local landfill, thereby increasing the life of the landfill; and produce refuse-derived fuel (RDF) to reduce the amount of coal consumed at the City’s municipal electrical generating station. [Note: Approximately 70% of the MSW is converted into RDF, comprising 10 to 20% of the feedstock to the generating station.]
