(57) Abstract:
(EN): A waste stream collection, processing and gasification system (700) obtains waste from a variety of sources (702). Waste from the various sources (702) is transported via carts (704) to a collection station. At the collection station, various measurements and observations (706) may be made on a cart-by-cart basis. These measurements and observations may be recorded on a processor (708). This information is used by the processor (708) to develop statistical information regarding the waste stream or a waste stream model (710).
(FR): L'invention porte sur un système (700) de collecte, traitement et gazéification d'un courant de déchets qui recueille des déchets d'une diversité de sources (702). Les déchets provenant des diverses sources (702) sont transportés par des chariots (704) à une station de collecte. A la station de collecte, diverses mesures et observations (706) peuvent être réalisées sur une base chariot-à-chariot. Ces mesures et observations peuvent être enregistrées dans un processeur (708). Ces informations sont utilisées par le processeur (708) pour développer des informations statistiques relatives au courant de déchets ou à un modèle de courant de déchets (710).
