Identification of quality tolerances for the recycling of glass and lead from glass land fills

The current project investigates the quantities of foreign materials that can be tolerated in the smelt separation process developed in another on-going project. The planned project relays on identification, characterization and excavation of glass landfills as well as sorting and cleaning methods. The purpose of this prestudy is to complement and combine the on-going projects that aims for a sustainable remediation of glass landfills and the recycling of glass as well as metals for introduction into the circular economy. The project will contribute with knowledge that will fascilitate the remediation of glass landfills and increase the possibility to reach the environmental goal of a poison free Environment.
