Title:
Characterisation of waste fuels with TGA 
Abstract:
In this study an attempt is made to develop a method to determine the composition of an unknown waste mixture. The basic idea is that the waste fuels are composed of some major components, e.g. paper, plastic, textile and biomass. These single components and waste mixtures are characterised by thermogravimetric analyser (TGA). The measured weight loss curve (TG-curve) or its differential (DTG-curve) is used as a fingerprint of each material. To obtain the composition of an unknown waste mixture...    »
