Due to the increased manufacturing of new vehicles, older ones the so called end-of-life vehicle's (ELV) are being disposed more frequently. The EU ELV directive (entered into force 21/10/2000) sets targets and objectives that must be obeyed by the member states. Under this directive from 01/01/2006 for all ELV, the reuse and recovery rate should be min. 85% (by weight) and min. 80% (by weight) rate of recycling. From 01/01/2015 for all ELV, the reuse and recovery rate should be min. 95% (by weight) and min. 85% (by weight) rate of recycling. Because of the lack of a cost-effective technology to recycle this waste, it is mostly land filled, smaller amounts are incinerated. In this work, basing on the reviewing of the available technological methods, a new thermal treat system for ASR is proposed: Firstly, a microwave pyrolysis of ASR is used. During this pyrolysis process, metals will be successfully recycled, and also generate by-products such as pyrolysis gas, oil, and char. These by-products will be further reformed using high-temperature steam gasification to generate high-purity synthetic gas, which will be used for a small-scale electricity generation system. Energy and mass balance of the whole system will be done. The electricity generation efficiency will be assessed.
