For the sake of the secure recovery of environmental impact substances from end-of-life electric home appliances, primary disassembly is applied in an integrated recycling plant. In this refrigerator recycling process, coolant CFCs, oil, compressor and copper, aluminum and steel are recovered. For the efficient recovery of high purity materials, an integrated recycling plant is developed. In this paper, a primary disassembling process for used refrigerators in an integrated recycling plant is reported. AEHA (Assoc. Electric Home Appliances) has been working on the technical evaluation of this process, where a total recycling plant system was developed and is in experimental operation
