SPL Recycling - Part 1
Started June 2015 - Ongoing
Spent pot lining (SPL) is partly recycled today, the part that is not recycled is landfilled. This we like to change.
The project is in two parts;
PART 1: Mapping of methods with literature study (identification of organizations and companies) and feasibility evaluation.
PART 2: In-depth study of chosen methods, with mass flow analysis listing all inputs and outputs, along with environmental impact.
