Feasibility Study of Cardboard Waste Recycling
MetadataShow full item record
Waste management and utilization strategies are major concerns in several countries. Cardboard recycling is a common technique for treating Paper waste, as production recipe contains waste mass by 80%, printed paper contains toxic substances that are used in the manufacture of inks and colors, and their disposal by incineration produces toxic fumes as well as carbon in the form of small grains attached to the air and attack the human respiratory system. In most developed countries where land is scarce and the environmental controls are strict, environmental policies tend to reduce landfill disposals as much as possible. In this paper a feasibility study of cardboard waste recycling in Misurata has been conducted. The paper explores the technical options available for a such recycling. Determine the factors that are considered important for the economic success of the project. In addition, a feasibility study has been conducted. Several economic indicators such as payback period, internal rate of return have been estimated. The results have shown that cardboard recycling is economically feasible. Furthermore, a sensitivity analysis for the important factors have been conducted in order to show their effect on the feasibility that system.
