Abstract : This report addresses the economics of co-firing refuse derived fuel (RDF) in an fuel oil fired boiler. The report specifies the type of RDF required; the cost and type of modifications to the oil boiler; and the price which can be paid for RDF based on boiler size and RDF feedrate. Life cycle economic procedures are used to develop breakeven graphs of RDF price versus boiler size. A list of Navy oil boilers with the potentials of utilizing RDF is given. (Author)
