Both the professional staff at SCS and the firm itself have been recognized for research
achievements and technology innovations in the solid waste management, and has received many
awards and industry recognition through the Solid Waste Association of North America
(SWANA), the National Association of Solid Waste Management (NSWMA), the U. S. EPA’s
Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE),
and the National Society of Professional Engineers. Marc Rogoff, a key member of SCS’s WTE
project team, was the primary author of a book on Waste-to-Energy (See Section 4).

Exhibit 2 summarizes the solid waste and environmental services provided by the firm.

Relative to WTE facilities and conversion technologies, SCS can provide the following services:

              Air permitting, including Title V compliance assistance and renewal applications.
              Technical assessment of design and operations.
              Feasibility studies for financing.
              Owner’s/bank’s engineering representative during construction and/or operation.
              Siting studies.
              Assistance with grant funding applications.
              Solid waste management plans.

Not since the 1970s has the municipal sector expressed such high interest in various waste
conversion technologies, including organics diversion and processing, WTE, and bio- fuels.
Driven by emerging state and federal incentives programs for renewable forms of energy and the
dynamic, but ever increasing price of petroleum-derived energy, technology vendors have been
literally inundating every major municipality in the country with information on their systems.

The conversion technologies include thermal, biological and bio-chemical based processes, some
that had a relatively brief, but not very successful tenure in the 1970s. They all are back and are
clamoring for an opportunity to build and operate a plant to prove that they are here to stay and
can compete financially with conventional WTE plants and landfills.

The claims being made by some developers seem “too good to be true”, as the saying goes. SCS
can help communities evaluate the claims being made and applicability of these emerging
technologies to their specific communities and circumstances.

SCS has been focusing on this emerging sector for several years and has a staff devoted to
staying current with the latest technologies. SCS has been disseminating unbiased information
on these technologies so that municipal officials can make informed decisions for their
communities. Consider some of SCS’s recent accomplishments in this field:

              Economic Feasibility Study of Plasma Arc WTE Plant, Marion, Iowa.

              Evaluation of Plasma Arc WTE Plant, Juneau, Alaska.

              Feasibility study of Anaerobic Digestion WTE Plant, South Carolina.

              Feasibility Evaluation of alternative thermal WTE technologies for Master Plan,
               Southeastern Public Service Authority (SPSA), Virginia.

              Asset valuation of SPSA’s 2,000 ton-per-day Refuse Derived Fuel WTE Facility.

              SWANA Ohio Chapter - Presentation on status of emerging alternative WTE
               technologies.

                                A list of potential manufacturers/contractors was developed and
                                contacted to gather pertinent information as part of the specification
                                process. A survey form was then developed to help assist in this

                                technology and/or manufacturer.
                                As part of the effort, SCS developed an economic/financial
                                spreadsheet model of the proposed incineration facility along with
                                supporting assumptions, calculations, and references. The model
                                enabled evaluation of potential options in terms of present value costs
                                The overall economic model summarized details on the following

                                   Initial capital costs
                                   Operating and Maintenance Cost
                                   Equipment life and replacement
                                   Cost per ton in terms of present value costs
                                The Navy has requested funding for the project and anticipates

                                 RDF, coal, and No. 2 fuel oil. For purposes of the emission
                                 calculations, the RDF was assumed to have non-hazardous
                                 solid waste in liquid form applied prior to entering the boilers.
                                 The pollutant emission rates for combustion of RDF were
                                 calculated using two distinct methods: the emission factors
                                 cited in 40 CFR 60 Subpart Cb and the emission factors cited in

                                  by key generator groups on the Island. Data gathered during the
                                  two waste sampling seasons (wet and dry) will present a more
                                  complete picture of disposal by each generator, and an analysis

                                  can be assigned to the generator groups. The data is being used
                                  to identify the potential WTE facility options for Tutuila,
                                  including the type of processing facility, facility costs, and
                                  energy generation. In addition, discussions of possible recycling
                                  or diversion opportunities will be included in the analysis.

residues and other involved creating products from the auto shredding industry. These studies
included; markets, prices, public attitudes, health and safety issues, quality issues, and regulatory
permitting aspects. She also is very experienced at accessing agency databases and compiling
information related to recyclable materials and products made from materials reclaimed from the
waste stream.
