Theory and Tools of Physical Separation/Recycling

Kari Heiskanen     Aalto University, Espoo, Finland

Abstract

Materials for recycling may consist of end-of-life (EOL) product streams, byproducts and waste streams from original equipment manufacturing and the production of components, and finally also rejects, byproducts and waste streams from raw-material producers. A common feature is that all consist of compounds. The elements of the compounds can be recycled only by chemical or metallurgical means.
