Abstract

VOLUME 1 : Waste incineration The object of this study is to examine the efficiency of the current techniques used to reduce heavy metal emissions from waste incineration plants, and also to reduce costs (investment and running costs). After determining the types of waste and the main techniques of incineration used in the Member States, the report describes the abatement techniques - dedusting and dechlorination - and discusses a wide range of waste treatment installations, based on the results of measurements of the concentration of heavy metals in gases up- and down-stream from the abatement system. VOLUME 2 : Metallurgy This part of the study deals with the technologies for the abatement of particulate and heavy metal emission in ferrous and non-ferrous metal industries, primary and secondary processes (pyroprocessing and hydroprocessing). After describing the different type of emissions and the abatement techniques, this report introduces the concept of clean technology. Pollution control technologies are split into two stages, collection and cleaning up. The conclusions focus on the evolution of the industrial sectors concerned and their economic aspects.
