Study „Treatment of shredder residue with MWIPplus

On behalf of the foundation the Paul Scherrer Institut investigated the technical possibilities to improve the co-incineration of shredder residue in municipal waste incineration plants (MWIP). In principle, there are measures prior to and after MWIP treatment that can address this. The conclusion is that MWIP residues (slag and fly ash) could be improved ecologically through comparatively technically simple metals reduction processes.
