Abstract:In the series of investigations whether and how it is possible to reclaim the iron and tin constituents after incineration, several experiments were performed with the refuse incinerator of Amsterdam. The operating conditions were varied and the influence on the behaviour of the tin cans were determined. The degree of contamination and oxidation was established, just as tin losses and average tin content after incineration. Experiments with pyrolysis of scrap polyvinyl chloride in the presence of the incinerated tinplate showed that, from the earlier formed iron-tin alloy it is possible to reclaim almost all the tin, reducing the tin content in the cans to less than 0.05%, with iron losses not exceeding 5%.
