Using Metal-Rich WEEE Plastics as Feedstock / Fuel Substitute for an Integrated Metals Smelter
November 2006

EFRA, PlasticsEurope, and Umicore Precious Metals Refining carried out a full scale trial to assess the technical feasibility of including mixed WEEE materials with high plastics contents in the feed to an integrated metals smelter. The trial ran for a total of 8 days, using a sample of 217 tonnes of household WEEE. Impacts on plant performance, metals recovery, emissions and energy balance were assessed.
