A LAB-SCALE MICROWAVE SYSTEM FOR EXPERIMENTS OF HIGH TEMPERATURE WASTE PYROLYSIS

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

The reactor designed and assembled at Università degli Studi di Palermo - presented here -was conceived to explore high unit power input, high temperature reductive processes.Its main field of use therefore is likely to be the destruction of liquid waste fed as an aerosol; or of VOCs; or of granular waste making a fluidized bed. If required, a 3 - phase system including a solid catalyst could also be set up. These waste should be free of low - melting or boiling metals. Incidentally, a literature review shows that the compounds taken as benchmarkin thermal VOC destruction are trichloroethylene, benzene and toluene.At lower unit power rates this MW - based system lends itself also to recoveringuseful fractions from complex waste like WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment), through pyrolysis and gasification.
