Experimental Study on Fluorine Release from Photovoltaic Backsheet Materials Containing PVF and PVDF during Pyrolysis and Incineration in a Technical Lab-Scale Reactor at Various Temperatures.
Abstract With a sharp increase in photovoltaic (PV) installations across the world, PV waste is now a relatively new addition to the e-waste category. From 45,000 tonnes in 2016, the PV waste stream is rapidly increasing and is projected to reach 60 million tonnes by 2050. Backsheets are composite structures made from several material layers […]United States, National USA Incineration
Fluoride network and circular economy as potential model for sustainable development – A review.
Highlights Industrial processes increase fluoride levels and transport in the environment. Various fluoride biological pathways increase the risk of toxicity exposure. Steering actors must be recognized to attain perpetual sustainable development. Circular economy, as a tool to sustainable development, must have same objectives. Abstract Fluorine is the most reactive elements among the halogen group and […]International Incineration
Waste containing PFAS chemicals poses conundrums
[See photos at top of original article] With few state or federal regulations existing for PFAS chemicals, the military and impacted towns face the tough question: Where to dispose of filters and waste? When carbon filters filled with firefighting foam chemicals from Bucks and Montgomery counties are burned at an incinerator in Delaware County, the […]United States, Pennsylvania Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
New laboratory study reveals that highly-toxic hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acids are released when PTFE burns
Munich / Frankfurt am Main – The independent institute Warringtonfire Frankfurt GmbH examines impact of incineration of PTFE, Polyurethane and Polyester membrane grades in an open fire in accordance with EN ISO 5659-2 (NBS smoke chamber). Given the growing global “tourism” of used clothing and textile waste, the results of the analysis are especially critical […]Germany Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
Resource efficient recovery of critical and precious metals from waste silicon PV panel recycling.
Highlights Resource efficiency of PV recycling processes is analysed in different scenarios. Processes with high-efficiency can recycle up to 83% of the waste panel. Obtaining high-quality recycled materials from PV grants significant benefits. The treatment of halogenated plastics represents a bottleneck for PV recycling. Knowing the composition of panels is essential to boost their efficient […]International Electronics Industry Incineration
Barry Biomass plant operators successfully applied to change the way one sites’s emissions is monitored
Note from FAN: This biomass plant has been roundly opposed by the local community, but without success. Read more here and here and scientific reports from Energy Justice Network. ________________________________________________________________________ BARRY Biomass plant operators have successfully applied to change the way one of the emissions from site is monitored. This means that they will now […]United Kingdom, Wales Incineration
Emissions from incineration of fluoropolymer materials – A literature survey.
The Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT) commissioned a literature survey on incineration of fluoropolymer materials, overviewing the available literature on formation of greenhouse gases until August 2008. The survey provides the foundation on which decisions for the future needs for further investigations will be made. Suggestions for sampling were also part of the study. *Read […]Norway Incineration
