This study gathered information on the quantities of waste material available at U.S. Army installations from installation reports and from the U.S. Army Solid Waste Annual Reporting System (SWARS) database, then estimated the amount of electricity that Direct Carbon Fuel Cell (DCFC) technologies could generate from those wastes, and finally compared those amounts with the current average annual electrical loads at the ten largest Army installations. The analysis finds that the use of a pyrolysis/DCFC system could produce an average of 12% of the entire installation’s demand at nine of the top 10 largest Army installations. Such a system could offset demand at the other installation in the top 10 by 33%.
