LCM applied to Auto Shredder Residue (ASR)
Auto Shredder Residue (ASR) is the waste generated from End of Life Vehicles (ELVs) pre-treatment, dismantling, shredding and metals recovery operations. ASR consists of plastics, rubber, textiles, glass, fines, dirt, etc. and many time is contaminated with heavy metals, hydrocarbons and PCBs. ASR is currently landfilled or incinerated but, due to the coming into force of Directive 2000/53/EC, it must be treated aiming at material and energy recovery to reach recycling targets by 2015. This work aims at a sustainable ASR management by using LCA as a decision tool, improved car design and innovative plastic recycling technologies.
