The recovery of resources from processing urban and industrial waste streams is essential to creating a sustainable society. The implementation of the ISASMELT™ Top Submerged Lance (TSL) technology for the retrieval of metals and the capture of energy has been applied in the real world for over 20 years.
The ISASMELT™ furnace is highly suited to treat these complex waste streams, with their varying compositions and dimensions, due to the flexibility and adaptability of the technology. The conditions in the furnace are tightly controlled to ensure the desired products and compositions are achieved. The turbulent, high temperature melt is capable of destroying hazardous chemicals. The slag generated can be used or stored without causing further pollution.
This paper describes how existing and future ISASMELT™ operators can leverage the technology to supplement their feed supply, and recover valuable materials from an increasing range of urban and industrial waste streams.
