Abstract [en]

Recycling of polymers has come into focus lately. Many polymers carry a backpack of energy from manufacturing, which is lost in present recycling of e.g. automotives and small house hold appliances. This calls for higher efficiency in recycling. To take a step in this direction a literature study is made and an experiment at a recycling plant for refrigerators and freezers. A batch of 30m3 of electronic waste was collected and processed in a so-called Hurricane machine. The experiment showed that recycling of polymers can be made on higher levels of efficiency with the used machine, if complemented with sorting and some initial processing before shredding. In order to improve polymer recycling a set of process steps must be designed in order to get secondary polymer fractions that can be used in products.
