  • French SRF manufacturer boosts capacity with UNTHA shredder investment

    Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) manufacturer Environnement 48 has increased the capacity of its waste processing facility in South West France, having invested in its second UNTHA shredder. Already one of the region's most established waste management companies, Environnement 48 hit the headlines in early 2016 when its ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Scavenger: getting more out of shredder fractions

    Driven by the goal of enabling complete separation of shredder light fraction into streams with their own singular characteristics, work at Belgium-based recycling technology specialist AD REM has culminated in the launch of its latest piece of equipment - the Scavenger. This new development is also designed to process shredder heavy fraction eddy current drops. The initial objective when ...

  • Which waste fraction makes the most lucrative shredding business?

    Are you specialised in one waste fraction or do you shred all of them? Wood, domestic waste, tyres? Of course, lucrativeness of different waste fractions is largely dependent on the costs of shredding them. Then there are the restrictions your machinery might have. Is you shredder suitable for all fractions or is it optimised for only one type of waste? And if you can use it for shredding ...

  • Solidification / Immobilisation of hazardous waste for subterranean storage

    The use of subterranean salt mines for the final storage of inorganic hazardous waste is state of the art in Germany, and in fact most other European countries. However, the technical requirements to prepare the waste in an appropriate way are quite challenging. Over ten years ago econ supplied a plant to a salt mine in eastern Germany. The plant uses econ’s unique batch-wise working mixing ...

  • 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 ...

  • Report: Recycling of flame-retarded plastics from waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE)

    Shredder residues produced in plants processing waste electric and electronic equipment are excluded from material recycling due to a variety of polymeric materials and the presence of brominated flame retardants (BFR), which might contain banned polybrominated diphenyl ethers or toxic polybrominated dioxins and furans (PBDD/F). Herein we present a technological approach to transfer a significant ...
