The article is devoted to the experimental study of effective thermal characteristics of municipal solid waste (MSW) wet layer in the drying process. The research is based on the zone method. Series of laboratory experiments was performed. The drying kinetics and temperature curves were obtained on the base of which the kinetic coefficients were determined. We constructed a graph of the kinetic coefficients of the material moisture. The research results can be used for determination the temperature and moisture content fields in the MSW layer during its processing.
