At the Union Electric Meramec power plant in St. Louis, tests in which refuse-derived fuel was co-fired with pulverized coal in a tangential suspension-fired coal boiler have been conducted. Data obtained were used to calculate the megawatt-hours of electrical energy produced by refuse-derived fuel. The experimental method used, the results obtained, and a discussion of these results are presented in this report.
