This paper describes the Albany New York Solid Waste Energy Recovery System (ANSWERS), which consists of two plants — a City-owned refuse-derived fuel (RDF) plant, and a State-owned boiler plant in which RDF is burned. This paper is chiefly concerned with the City-owned RDF plant, and describes shakedown tests, problems encountered and solutions developed. Operational statistics and operations policies for the City-owned plant are discussed. Laboratory measurements of the heating value of RDF samples are compared with results actually achieved in the State boilers.
