Waste Characterization Studies and Data Review

Geosyntec has significant experience designing wasteshed analyses and conducting waste characterization studies for specific processing technologies which recover recyclables and organics.

Geosyntec professionals are familiar with the specific challenges posed by waste separation and processing, particularly as the industry moves toward automation of these operations. Our experience is based on actual facility design and facility operating requirements. We have directly managed and performed dozens of waste composition and characteristics studies, both to evaluate the bulk waste stream and to determine properties of specific waste streams of interest for separation and processing, supporting our clients' assessment of the feasibility of emerging technologies.
