Recognizing that the broad mechanical recycling of postconsumer plastics has technical or economic limitations that are only now beginning to be overcome in specific cases, the Association of Plastics Manufacturers in Europe (APME) embarked on a ground-breaking series of studies beginning in the early 1990s to evaluate state-of-the-art municipal solid waste combustors for the co-combustion of packaging plastics to produce heat and electricity. Gaseous emissions and solid residues from the combustion process were evaluated and showed to be in compliance with strict German regulations. These studies have been well documented in the literature and in APME Technical Reports [111, 137-140].
