sistent within categories. Moisture and component composition are more variable. One option, therefore, is to sort samples to estimate component composition and have subsamples tested for moisture only. Then, with the use of the documented values for the proximate and ultimate composition and heat value of each waste component, the overall combustion characteristics of the waste stream can be estimated.
