Workshop: Recycling strategies for sustainable raw materials supply
Chairs: Matthias Franke (DE)

Due to the current drastic global growth of raw material demand, the sustainable supply to industrialized countries of minerals and metals for high-tech and future applications like PV-boards, wind power plants, consumer electronics etc. is currently of concern. The workshop will address main issues like the estimation of the raw material demand of specific industries, criticality of the needed raw materials, identification of alternative supply chains from MSW and production residues, development or optimization of recycling technologies for recovery of critical raw materials.

Introductory lectures:

M. Franke, S. Kroop, M. Mocker, M. Faulstich (DE)
Recycling strategies for a sustainable raw material supply of high-tech industries
