This report summarises the results of the research project “Sustainable high value products from low-grade residues and wastes”, known as WasteBusters. The overall goal of the project was to generate novel sustainable solutions for bio and circular economy meeting the research needs of the Finnish industry. In the project, the whole value chain from pretreatment of industrial feedstocks via pyrolysis to products was studied.
Main results of the project were:
- Development of an improved waste pretreatment unit
- New data on pyrolysis/thermolysis of industrial waste
- Techno-economic assessment of chosen concepts
- Information on climate impacts of the concepts.
- New data on business and operational environment for pyrolysis of industrial plastic waste and used wood
- Several presentations of project results and reference articles under processing
- Several new projects were planned two of them already accepted.
