Language: English Model of waste sorting for the production of solid fuels In this doctoral dissertation we study the following problems in the field of waste management: producing an alternative solid fuel from non-hazardous waste, developing mathematical model, conceptual design of pilot plant for producing solid recovered fuel and about social awareness of waste management. Waste policy in the European Union has been envisioned through the waste management hierarchy. This system gives the greatest emphasis to waste prevention, followed by preparation for reuse, recycling, energy use and the final step, which is disposal. The production of solid fuels from non-hazardous waste in EU is becoming increasingly established and in Slovenia is becoming increasingly topical too. We developed a mathematical model, in the context of our research, for the preparation of solid fuel from non-hazardous waste, for the preparation of different samples of solid fuel in which the quality of solid fuel can be arbitrarily changed in terms of its energy output, chemical and physical properties. The mathematical model is the basis for determining the approximate quality of solid fuel, and consequently the class of solid fuel. Fuel samples were prepared on a technological line for the treatment of municipal and industrial waste material and laboratory analysed. The aim of manufacture the quality solid recovered fuel (SRF) is: (a) to obtain the fuel, which will no longer speak as the waste, but rather about the product – about the fuel. Therefore, the proposal for the standardization of solid alternative fuels from non-hazardous waste was given in Slovenia. (b) Reduce the negative impacts on the environment, humans and other living organisms. (c) Reduce the use of fossil fuels; optimization. (d) To reduce corrosion, generated by the application of fuel with higher chlorine content and hence indirectly reduce the cost of cleaning. (e) The possible use of SRF for co-incineration. (f) Reduce the cost of removal and deposit of residue after incineration or co-incineration. The main problem of excessive amounts of disposed waste to landfill is obscured in the social awareness of waste management. In the fifth chapter we made an analysis of knowledge and proper waste management, based on which it will be necessary to develop an educational concept in order to raise of people’s awareness.
