  • Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) - From Waste to Products

    The paper will explain WESA-SLF, a dry-mechanical process to treat ASR with the aim to achieve usable products, mainly organic materials, metals, and minerals. Detail information will be given about the first plant for processing 4 tons per hour ASR which had its start up end of 1999. The experience with the first months in operation as well as with the quality of the products and the influence ...

  • 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 ...


  • LCA of innovative technology for energy production from automotive Shredder Residue

    Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) is a problematic waste material remaining after shredding and recovery processes of End of Life Vehicles (ELV). Its heterogeneous grain size and composition make it difficult its recovery or disposal. While ASR accounts for about 20‐25% of the weight of an ELV, the EU's ELV Directive (2000/53/EC) requires that by 2015 a minimum 95% wt. of an end‐of‐life ...

  • Axion waste processing plant training case study 3 – Operators team at automotive shredder residue recycling plant

    Challenge: The recovery process was a unique and complex automotive shredder residue recovery plant. There was a wide range of expertise within the trainee group. Some trainees had worked within the industry for over 10 years, whilst others had worked only 3 months. Plant modification work on site prohibited access to the machinery that the training ...

  • 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 ...


  • Separation of Nylon 66 (PA 66) From Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) Plastics by Flotation

    Plastics are the most valuable component of the automotive shredder residue (ASR) waste material making up 30% of the total weight. One promising separation technique, which is able to selectively recover the plastics from ASR, is flotation. It has been demonstrated for a synthetic PA66/ABS/PC system that nylon 66 (PA 66) can be selectively separated by caustic treatment and addition of alcohol ...


  • 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, ...

  • Staged Thermal Treatment Combined With Pyrometallurgical Smelting Producing Energy and Products From Waste

    Incineration of waste is considered as a state-of-the-art technology. However staged gasification in combination with pyrometallurgical smelting is ready for market introduction and offers principal advantages. These are higher efficiency (up to 35% electricity), efficient and cheaper fuel gas cleaning (less emissions), high quality secondary products (synthetic basalt), high input flexibility, ...


  • Austin AI QXR-M – Technology to improve metal recovery from non-ferrous residues

    Existing technology has been used for some time to separate light non-ferrous alloys from heavier non-ferrous alloys; however, over the past three years, there is a significant added value in performing additional separations to recover specific high dollar alloys. Examples of such are separating pure copper from copper alloys (brass and bronze) or wrought from cast aluminum. The only way to do ...

  • Can today’s unrecyclables become tomorrow’s resources?

    Labelling some plastic waste products as ‘unrecyclable’ and consigning them to landfill or energy-from-waste plants risks losing the opportunities to recover these raw materials in the future, warns a leading UK-based plastics recycler. Axion Polymers suggests that while some plastic might be considered ‘unrecyclable’ today, given the rate of progress in resource recovery ...

  • More circular economy: How end-of-life vehicle recycling can be improved

    The circular economy package adopted by the European Commission contains numerous measures aimed at promoting resource efficiency and recycling in the EU. Industry representatives are convinced that the recycling of end-of-life vehicles will also benefit from the package. "The measures planned by the European Commission in the field of design and innovation for the circular economy will ...

  • Study Charts a Future for Waste-Derived Fuels

    Pointers to possible future EU policy initiatives to give co-incineration facilities burning waste-derived fuels a strategic role in waste management have emerged in a study for the European Commission.1 The report suggests a policy focus on promoting source separation of municipal wastes, active discouragement of mass burn incinerators, and a levelling of the regulatory playing-field for ...

  • Suez Regene Atlantique, France - Case Study

    SUEZ Regene Atlantique is a French plant owned by the SUEZ group which specializes in the recovery and recycling of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) bottles. During 2013, the company received a sizable strategic investment which was specifically earmarked to modernize and improve its optical sorting process for bottle recycling. This planned upgrade was to be accomplished via the purchase of new ...
