Heavy metals in residential waste and incineration bottom ashes

Project Details

Description

The project performs five full scale incineration test(300 -1200 tons)with residential waste of various origin in order to established the heavy metal content of the waste. By controlling all emissions and determing their compositions the composition of the original waste can be found. In addition, the composition of individual material fractions in the waste are analyzed. The aim is to determined the contribution of residential waste and thereby indirectly the contribution by non-residential waste to the heavy metal burden of incinerator bottom ash as a basis for future improvements in source controls.
The projects is funded by the National Danish EPA and the incinerator plants assciated with Affald Danmark
