The iron concentration was determined by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy on a Varian SpectrAA300 spectrometer with Zeeman background correction using pyrolytically coated graphite tubes.
After separating the metals, it shreds, heats, and composts everything else in a short 48-hour trip through long, rotating "bio-barrels." Plastics and fabrics that have not degraded are reduced pyrolytically (heat without oxygen) to pyrocarbon for metallurgy, gas, and tar.
Commercial grades were pyrolytically stripped (PS), so that polyaro-matic hydrocarbons were removed from the surface.
A silver hollow-cathode lamp (Varian Techtron, Melbourne, Australia), operated at 328.1 nm, and pyrolytically coated graphite tubes with L'vov platforms (Perkin-Elmer) were used.
