Abstract: Solid waste management is an important engineering function at Forward Operating Bases (FOBs). Due to the contingency nature of base operations and daily life at the FOB, waste generation is likely to be always higher than Continental United States (CONUS) on a per soldier basis. To improve operational effectiveness and efficiency, there is a need to gather baseline information on which to evaluate the performance of new technologies and approaches to solid waste management. To fill this data gap, the Army Study Program funded a group of studies for power, water, and waste management. This specific work characterized and quantified solid waste generation, which includes septage (“blackwater”) generation, at the “per soldier” and base camp level.
