This test method covers the determination of the gross calorific value of a prepared analysis sample of solid forms of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) by the bomb calorimeter method.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, this test method was withdrawn without replacement in July 2011 because of limited use by industry in light of analogous standards for coal.
