This presentation will address what is required to develop new Waste-To-Energy (WTE) projects by examining the model for project development followed during the 1980s and early 1990s. The setbacks and successes for that approach will be discussed and a new model for project development will be proposed. The original model will be exemplified by the “Resource Recovery Management Model,” developed by the Mitre Corporation for USEPA in 1980. That original model will be revisited and key project development actions and milestones set forth therein will be reviewed and discussed with regard to how they should be revised in order to arrive at a new model appropriate to current conditions. WTE development and operational experience gained during the previous twenty (20) years will be the basis for the updated model.
