Identification of volatile organic compounds of solid waste by pyrolysis GC/MS for environmental impact and green manufacturing
Global levels of urban municipal solid waste (MSW) are expected to near 4 billion tonnes per year by 2025. While recycling methodologies have advanced and despite global environmental concerns, incineration and burning are still practiced as a quick solution to waste management. Other recent advances have developed new methodologies to utilise end of life waste products as feedstock of industrial processes. This study has applied temperature dependent pyrolysis GC/ MS from thermal desorption at 250 degrees C to degradation temperature of 500 degrees C, to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from various types of urban municipal solid waste materials. Focus was set on their potential use in green manufacturing processes, and to better estimate the range of pollutants introduced into the atmosphere as greenhouse gases (GHGs), in relation to waste management during incineration/burning.
