RESHMENT-An ASR Process For Maximized Recycling, Reuse and Recovery 2001-01-3757

End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are usually shredded so that the raw materials, which are mainly metals comprising between 70 and 80% of the entire vehicle weight, can be recycled. The remainder is referred to as automotive shredder residue (ASR) and contains a broad mixture of many different materials in modern vehicles, such as glass, all kinds of plastics and rubbers, different types of tissues and filler materials. There is also a certain amount of non-separated metals and heavy metals. ASR is usually landfilled, however a lot of mechanical and thermal processes have been developed and tested in order to meet the same requirements imposed by regulations for ASR which are valid for other wastes such as municipal solid waste. The RESHMENT process is a combined mechanical and thermal process which aims at maximizing reuse, recycling and recovery of products and energy from ASR in order to meet the challenging recycling requirements stipulated in the most recent EU regulations on used-car recycling.
