Pyrolysis and Gasification of Industrial Waste Towards Substitution Fuels Valorisation
Industrial waste is usually sorted in order to valorise most of minerals, polymers and metals. This sorting does generate a sorting residue with a rather high calorific value. The present study shows the opportunities of producing gaseous or liquid substitution fuels by pyrolysis or gasification of industrial sorting residues. By the use of the predictive model, it is possible to evaluate, for various inputs (tyres, fluffs, mixed plastics and biomass residues), the mass en energy balance for each of these thermal treatments. Opportunities to produce substitution fuels issued from these waste streams are evaluated.
