Abstract [en]

For cable and wire scrap recycling, physical separation technologies can offer a solution that is both environmentally friendly and economically viable. It is clear that such toxic emissions as hydrogen chloride and chlorine gases resulting from burning polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can be avoided, and that both metals and plastics can be recovered and reused. In this paper, physical separation techniques employed in the cable and wire scrap recycling industry throughout the world are described. A critical comparison of various separation techniques has been made. It appears that density-based separation techniques, in particular, air tables have been implemented extensively in this specific recycling industry world-wide. However, many other separation techniques capable of recycling cable and wire scrap have also been developed with a view towards improving separation selectivity (product quality), while maintaining a sufficient level of materials recovery. Of these, it seems that electrodynamic or high tension separation techniques remain to be developed by designing new electrode systems
