One of the viable techniques to reduce land filling of automotive shredder residue is by co-incinerating them with biomass. This study focuses on characterization of bottom and fly ashes produced from the coincineration of the automotive shredded residue with oil palm biomass. The co-incineration was carried out in a pilot-scale fluidized bed incinerator. The oil palm biomass used was oil palm shell while the automotive shredded residue was obtained from a local recycling company. The characterization was done based on particle size distribution, morphology (SEM analysis) and chemical composition (EDS analysis). In term of chemical composition the ashes contain C (Carbon), O (Oxygen), Si (Silicon), K (Potassium), Ca (Calcium) and Fe (Ferum.
