Abstract An economic evaluation was made of the Bureau of Mines incinerator residue separation process to update the one published in 1971 to a mid-1974 cost basis. This evaluation includes a modification of the glass recovery operation used in the original plant design as well as a unit to bale ferrous scrap product before shipment. Products from the plant are ferrous metal, aluminum and copper-zinc scrap, and a mixed color glass cullet. Capital and operating cost estimates are included for four plant sizes. A graph of interest rate of return as a function of total product value is included to provide a measure of the profitability of the process.
