The various promotion countermeasures such as solidification, carbonization, and the creation of cement materials have been considered to existing treatment methods such as incineration and the creation of composts, since direct landfill was prohibited for encouraging the recycling based on the sludge treatment on land. The Main objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility of co-incineration for MSW (municipal solid waste) and SS (sewage sludge) through the quantitative supply of sewage sludge. In this study, optimum water content to operate normally incinerator is 85%. In order to increase the workability of sewage sludge, it is necessary to supply properly water. In the case study of sites, optimum water content is 87% due to the water evaporation. Therefore, it was found that the water content up to 87% would be reached the stable operation of co-incinerator on the mixture of municipal waste solid and sewage sludge.
