This document gives guidance on basket heating tests for characterization of self-heating properties of solid recovered fuels (SRFs).
This document includes:
a) a compilation of basket heating test methods;
b) guidance on the applicability and use of basket heating tests for SRF;
c) information on the application of basket heating test data for calculations of critical conditions in storage.
Data on spontaneous heat generation determined using this document is only associated with the specific quality and age of the sample material.
The information derived using this document is intended for use in quality control and in hazard and risk assessments related to the procedures given in ISO 21912.
