A pyrolysis-based technology was applied to recover high purity silica filler from epoxy resin compounds (molding resins) for electronic components, and to reuse it as a filler in the present paper. Molding resins mainly contain epoxy resin, harder, silica filler (70-85 wt %) and flame retardant consisting of brominated epoxy resin and antimony trioxide. Most effective conditions to reduce impurities in the recovered silica were found as heat around 1,000-1,100 °C and to keep oxygen concentration 5-10 vol. %. On the basis of these results, we have developed a practical process for recovering silica filler from molding resins using a roller kiln-type furnace. The recovered silica achieved a purity of C < 0.01 wt %, Sb < 0.4 wt %, and PO43- < 0.002 wt %. A jet-mil treatment was effective to grind the aggregates of recovered silica powder and to increase the reactivity of its surfaces. The recovered silica treated with the jet-mill showed good properties as a filler for a cast insulating epoxy resin compound. A secondary combustion method was successfully applied to the decomposition of the combustion gas. The treatment of the gas by heating at 1,100 °C decreased the toxic organic bromine compounds to a safe level and converted the antimony tribromide to diantimony trioxide, which could be collected by a dry recovery process at high recovery rate.
