ASME Carpet Recycling and Combustion Test Program
MetadataShow full item record
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers Research Committee on Industrial and Municipal Waste in conjunction with the Georgia Institute of Technology, carpet industry groups, and other interested parties has recently begun a program involving full-scale demonstration tests at cement kilns. The purpose of these tests is to evaluate the feasibility of recovering energy value and recycling materials from waste carpet. The results of this program will be available to parties interested in pursuing waste carpet as a feed for cement kilns or other combustion processes.
