Removal, Treatment and Utilisation of Waste Incineration Bottom Ash

Basics • Best Practice • Lighthouse Projects • Vivid Exchange of Information

The expert forum will be held by international experts from different European countries with long tradition in the treatment of municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration bottom ashes (IBA). Besides the everywhere profitable metal recovery, the utilisation of the mineral residues as secondary raw material underlies contrary legal and political frameworks in the different countries.

The idea of the expert forum is to give interested persons the opportunity to get in touch with this issue in a proper way and in a group with a manageable size of persons. Therefore, a concerted programme with a central theme and with sufficient time for discussion and query is going to be composed.

Following five main sections will be pursued:

1. General Introduction

2. Dry, Wet and Combined Removal from the Furnace Chamber / Treatment
Technology and Results from the New ZAV Recycling AG Plant (Hinwil, Switzerland)

3. Dry Treatment Trains

4. Wet Treatment Trains

5. Utilisation of the Mineral Residues – Prospects and Limitations

Dr. rer. nat. Franz-Georg Simon (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (German: Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, or BAM)) will do the moderation. Contributions to the expert forum and/or the accompanied technical book will be given by Prof. Rainer Bunge (Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil (HSR)), Dr.-Ing. Leo Simon Morf (ZAR – Zentrum für nachhaltige Abfall- und Ressourcennutzung / AWEL Amt für Abfall, Wasser, Energie und Luft, Kanton Zürich), Dr. Jiri Hyks and M.Sc. Ole Hjelmar (both Danish Waste Solutions ApS). Further experts are requested.
