  • Recycling Zinc From Municipal Solid Waste

    Results from experiments carried out in laboratory and on a 0.5 MW test facility are presented. It was shown that Zn can be substantially extracted from waste using different techniques. In the pilot experiments the Zn behavior was investigated with radioactive tracers. It was shown that by changing the operation conditions from combustion to gasification the amount of evaporated Zn can be ...
