"Material Recovery Facility Design Manual" is a comprehensive guide to the technical and economic aspects of material recovery facility (MRF) equipment and methods for separating and handling separable of source-separated recyclables in a typical municipal solid waste stream. For each individual constituent of the solid waste stream, alternative approaches are identified for separation and recovery. For each piece of equipment, the book covers design, theory of operation, sizing and equipment needs, for example shredders and balers. Descriptions in the book address limitations on material in the feed to the equipment, area requirements, building requirements, possible siting and permitting requirements, industrial health concerns, and the level of operator experience and training needed for proper operation. Economic factors discussed include purchase price, utility requirements, maintenance costs, labour costs, auxilliary equipment purchase needs, sizing, space requirements, redundancy requirements, and all aspects necessary for the development of performance and equipment specifications.
