USS043  |  Use of Silica Nanoparticles for Transforming Municipal Solid Waste Incineration (MSWI) Fly Ash into Composite Filler

Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) fly ash is the ash residue after incineration of municipal solid wastes. MSWI fly ash is known to improve the physical and mechanical properties of the composites. However, it contains harmful heavy metals. The featured technology is a cost-effective solution to transform MSWI fly ash into reinforced fillers for fabrication of high quality composites. To achieve this, the toxic heavy metals in the MSWI fly ash are stabilized through using silica nanoparticles. The fabricated composites have wide application in aerospace, automobile, marine, wind power, infrastructure and sport equipment due to lightweight and good mechanical properties.
