Characterisation of three UK municipal solid waste incineration ashes for use as secondary construction materials

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Air pollution control residues are an inherently variable waste stream and characterisation is important to inform treatment methods. In this paper XRD, leaching and particle size analysis of three APCr’s from UK based municipal solid waste incinerators are presented. Results highlighted the key differences attributed to the flue gas cleaning technology in place which affects the leaching rates. A detailed understanding of APCr properties will help develop new recycling methods to produce secondary construction materials from an increasingly diverse range of waste streams.
