Abstract

The optimization of a two-stage combustion process for high-poly vinyl chloride (PVC) solid wastes with hydrogen chloride (HCl) recovery was analyzed. The thermal efficiency was calculated to be approx. 36% depending on pyrolysis temperature and the PVC content in the solid waste. Results were presented for various process temperatures and for waste-derived fuels with varying amounts of PVC mixed with wood.
