Understanding the composition or ‘make-up’ of a waste stream is the first step to grasping its potential as a resource. Once the compositional profile of waste has been established, it is possible to determine the processes required to recover value from it.
This type of characterisation/ profiling is also essential to understanding the content of waste following treatment, as it allows the recyclable content and calorific value of materials to be ascertained.
Mayer has the ability to undertake large-scale compositional analysis and recycling and recovery mass balances. In the past this has included:
- waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)
- End-of-life vehicles (ELVs)
