>From: Priscilla Hayes <hayes@AESOP.RUTGERS.EDU>
>To: compost@compostingcouncil.org
>
>Does anyone have any information on studies that compare the btu/energy
>value of food waste in incinerators with other MSW sent there?  I understand
>that the high moisture content of the food waste makes it burn
>inefficiently, without producing significant energy.
>
>Thank you.
