AbstractThe products from the pyrolysis of automobile shredder residue, the waste produced in the recycling of old automobiles, have been studied. The pyrolysis process employed in the study was a commercial screw kiln unit. The chemical composition of the gas, liquid and solid fractions have been analyzed using a variety of techniques. The results of these analyses suggest that, while pyrolysis may represent a viable process for separating the organic materials from the inorganics, a full commercialization of the process must await a more detailed evaluation of the marketability of the products and their acceptance as feeds for full resource recovery.
