Abstract: As incineration provides a relatively safe means of disposal, significant reduction of weight and volume, and energy recovery from the waste, it was adopted by many countries. For the experimental investigation on the combustion characteristics of municipal solid waste (MSW), a lab scale fluidized bed facility was constructed. Many kinds of combustion runs were conducted in this fluidized bed combustion facility. The examined parameters were bed temperature (773 to 1143 K), form of fuels (scrap or whole), moisture of fuels and so on. Concentration of CO2, CO, SO2, O2 and NOx in the flue gas were monitored and recorded every 5 seconds. The temperatures along the reactor are recorded every 10 seconds. Experimental results were given and analyzed.
