Method for characterization of selfheating of different waste fraction

The Project aims to develop and validate a method for characterizing the self heating tendency of different waste fractions. Fires in waste piles in fuel storages at waste incineration plants is a large problem and it is important to increase the knowledge about key factors that causes self heating, in order the create a foundation for future recommendations.
