  I am part of a small group of activists promoting the use of thermolysis to
  process municipal solid waste. Thermolysis produces a carbon matrix which is
  then processed to retrieve inerts and salts - mainly chlorides. That black
  stuff is judged very interesting as a substitution fuel by cement kilns
  operators in Belgium. I guess this is a better way to do than feeding cement
  kilns with untreated MSW. Moreover, Belgium is expected to forbid the use of
  MSW in cement kilns within the coming months.
