Exergy Analysis of Aluminum Recovery from Municipal Solid Waste Incineration

Two main challenges, associated with the recovery of aluminum from state-of-the-art municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plants, are yield as well as quality losses of metallic aluminum due to particle surface oxidation and presence of impurities. Yet, in the framework of life cycle assessment (LCA) a direct measure for expressing the quality of primary… CONTINUE READING
