Metal Recovery Through Plasma-Arc Waste Treatment

Posted by PeatUSA on Aug. 03, 2011

PEAT International conducted an operational campaign on used Copper Wire (MSW) at its PTDR-100 Waste To energy System located in Sacramento, California. The objective of this campaign was to demonstrate the feasibility of using the PTDR-100 plasma-arc gasification system for processing used copper wire (class #1 and #2) to gauge its ability to improve yield and/or quality of the reclaimed copper.
