  • Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR) destruction in a plasma gasification reactor

    Test results on Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR), or car fluff, demonstrated destruction efficiency and safe conversion to synthesis gas and a glass residue, in a plasma gasification system. The synthesis gas consists primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide in the range between 20 and 22 vol-% respectively, or 45 and 55 vol-% dry basis, when corrected for nitrogen. In dry reforming operation, ...

  • Mechanical treatment of automobile shredder residue for its application as a fuel

    Enforcement of the Automobile Recycling Law in Japan requires utilization of automobile shredder residue (ASR). However, the high contents of copper (~5%) and chlorine (~1%) in ASR stand in the way of practical application. We studied methods for the removal of copper and chlorine from ASR so that it could be utilized as a fuel. By compression of the ASR for solidification with an extruder, the ...

  • Investigation of Pilot-Scale Experimental Pyrolysis Plant for the Treatment of Automobile Shredder Residue: Preliminary Results

    Abstract The main objective of the present research work is to evaluate both the process performance and characteristics of the products obtained from the treatment of automobile shredder residue using a pilot-scale experimental pyrolysis plant operating under different load and varying process temperature. ASR samples used for the treatment, solid and liquid by-products obtained and syngas ...


  • Recycling Options for Mixed Plastics in Automotive Shredder Residues

    Waste production (ASR) from shredding of automobiles is a major global problem. The current method of disposal via landfilling is unacceptable due to environmental concerns and high cost. This project focuses on the evaluation of competing technologies for recycling automotive shredder residues and in helping solve this industrial problem by analyzing feasible solutions for implementation. The ...


  • Automotive Shredder Residue its Application as a Reductant and Fuel in the Blast Furnaces of the Steel Industry

    Each year approximately 12 million automobiles, which have reached the end of their useful lives, are shredded in North America for the recovery of steel and other metals. Along with the metals the shredding operation produces a by-product known as autoshredder residue (ASR). ASR is a diverse mixture of organic and inorganic materials such as plastics, textile fabrics, glass etc.North American ...


  • Transformations of syngas derived from landfilled wastes using the Gasplasma process

    Abstract The Gasplasma advanced conversion technology is able to efficiently produce a clean syngas and an environmentally stable vitrified product from historically landfilled materials. The syngas is rich in hydrogen and carbon monoxide and possesses high calorific value, and low residual tar levels. While this syngas has traditionally been considered only as a fuel source for power ...
