A system with low process control requirements. For example, thermal processes have high PC while more robust processes such as landfill and composting do not. Further, a bioreactor landfill has a higher process control requirement than conventional landfills. More elaborate process control requirements introduce risk and maintenance loads.
4.Low process control requirements relative to throughput no automation of monitoring
3. Medium process control requirements relative to throughput.
2. High process control requirements with automated and integrated monitoring.
1. High process control requirements relative to throughput.
Input Quality Flexibility
A system that can readily handle changes in waste stream characteristics over time.
5. Can readily process the nominated materials/waste streams with current or projected contamination rates.
4. Can readily process the bulk of the nominated materials/waste streams and can be easily adapted to process the bulk of MSW and can be adapted to process some C&I waste with moderate additional expenditure
2. Can process a portion of the MSW stream (eg separated organics) and can take some input of C&I waste with little additional expenditure
1. Can process only a single waste stream (eg separated organics) and can not accept C&I waste
