Incineration is the process of destroying waste through burning. Because of the variety of substances found in e-waste, incineration can be associated with a major risk of generating and dispersing contaminants and toxic substances. The gases released during the burning and the residue ash are often toxic.
Mechanical processing is the first step in e-waste treatment, normally an industrial large scale operation to obtain concentrates of recyclable materials in a dedicated fraction and also to further separate hazardous materials.
The milling operations are a step in the recycle process, subsequent to the incineration process, in which the resulting materials are crushed to a fine powder.
The smelting process is used to separate precious metals (PM) and base metals (BM) from inert material residues from the incineration process.
The TBRF is a pyro-metallurgical furnace which has many applications.
