  1. 1. Pyrolysis and Detoxification of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) for Feedstock Recycling

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Panagiotis Evangelopoulos; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Pyrolysis; WEEE; solvent extraction; brominated flame retardants; Tetrabromobisphenol A; Auger reactor; Πυρόλυση; ΑΗΗΕ; εκχύλιση με διαλύτη; βρωμιωμένα επιβραδυντικά φλόγας; Τετραβρωμοδιφαινόλη Α; Pyrolys; WEEE; lösningsmedelsextraktion; bromerade flamskyddsmedel; tetrabrombisfenol A; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The trends in waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) generation shows that their volume constantly increases, while the current waste management technologies have proven to be insufficient in order to meet the strict criteria and the new legislations of the European Union. Pyrolysis and thermal treatment in general could be a valuable solution for closing the loop of materials and could contribute to the energy demands of modern society. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electronic Waste Plastics Characterisation and Recycling by Melt-processing

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Erik Stenvall; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; melt-blending; WEEE; ternary polymer blend; processing conditions; plastics recycling; composition analysis; e-waste;

    Abstract : Melt-processing of blended plastics from waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is a method to facilitate mechanical recycling, and this might improve the recycling conditions and increase the amounts of plastics being recycled. To ensure the quality of melt-blended plastic waste, it is essential to know the composition of the incoming material and then possibly improve the compatibility between the different polymer phases.

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; morphology; melt-blending; compatibilisation; extrusion; SEBS; WEEE; physical ageing; TOF-SIMS; co-continuous; chemical degradation; plastics recycling;

    Abstract : This work concerns a waste electrical and electronic equipment blend of recycled plastics (WEEEBR), reprocessed from a low density thermoplastics batch (600 kg) by removal of non-thermoplastic contamination (1.2 weight % (wt%)). READ MORE

  4. 4. Upgrading of fine residual electronic waste by microwave pyrolysis - Material Influence

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Andersson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dielectric properties of waste; recycling; Microwave pyrolysis; WEEE; Waste electrical and electronics equipment;

    Abstract : The large and increasing volumes of waste electrical and electronics equipment (WEEE) in society today make it important to collect and recycle these materials to as high extent as reasonable. Conventional recycling methods are based on mechanical treatments such as shredding, sorting and separation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Advancing the Frontier of Extended Producer Responsibility: The management of waste electrical and electronic equipment in non-OECD countries

    University dissertation from International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics, Lund University

    Author : Panate Manomaivibool; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
