Abstract

E-waste plastics are the fastest growing waste stream. The e-waste plastics are heterogeneous mixture of various plastics and additives including brominated flame retardants (BFRs). This study is to show ability of generation of valuable carbonic material from gases formed during pyrolysis of e-waste plastics by chemical vapor deposition on the selected catalyst.
