Abstract

The objective of this work was to describe the automobile shredder residue in order to study an appropriate final destination for this waste. Granulometric classification was operated and it was noticed that 60% of car fluff sample was a fraction <0.5 mm of diameter. Metals content was investigated and results showed that Fe were 65% of total metals content while the second most abundant metal was Cu or Zn depending on granulometric fraction. A metal speciation was operated and it was noticed that only Zn and Cd were easily removable by bland acid attack, while Fe and Al required a stronger acid attack to be removed.
