This panel session reviews a topic of long-standing interest and importance to the municipal waste combustion industry; how can some or all of the ten percent (10%) by volume of incoming material that remains after municipal solid waste is combusted be productively reused? This panel will address various reuse related topics, including but not limited to the following: • Pinellas County, Florida hosts a regional program where recovered ferrous metals from municipal waste combustors are shredded and recycled; an overview of experiences, economics, and logistics will be presented. • The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) will discuss the technical and regulatory background behind a September 2003 Consent Decree entered with American Ash Recycling for removal of residual materials in York County, Pennsylvania. • The City of Tampa has short-listed two (2) companies for what promises to be a precedent-setting ash reuse program; a status report will be given. • SUNY Stony Brook’s Waste Reduction and Management Institute’s work on two demonstration programs using processed MWC ash (using processed MSW combustor ash in both cold mix asphalt and construction quality cement blocks as well as a concrete block demonstration program) will be discussed. • Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (FDEP’s) multifaceted program to address municipal combustion ash residue beneficial use determinations, ash regulation changes, and its analysis of statewide total metals data will be reviewed.
