This project has investigated a variety of methods to establish solid waste composition. An analysis of processes occurring in the LD/LBE Converter, Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) and Blast Furnace (BF) were carried out. Chemical and physical characterizations of the waste were carried out. Particle samples from the EAF and BF were subject to leachability tests. Neural network modelling was used to construct a model of the blast furnaces except for the EAF and the LD/LBE Converter, for which it is impossible to know of the chemical composition of the scrap.
