This paper presents the results of an experimental study of the performance of a novel electrostatic separator. The separator consists of a conductive belt conveyor equipped with a plate electrode. The separation tests were performed on a sample containing 50% Polyvinylchloride (PVC) and 50% aluminum. The influence of electric field strength and belt speed on the separation efficiency was investigated. Numerical experiments have shown the feasibility of obtaining extract contents of aluminum and PVC in excess of 99.99% and 99.46%, respectively.
