RESEARCH OF WASTE MANAGEMENT WITH A HOLISTIC APPROACH

The Department of Processing and Recycling (I.A.R.) investigates research issues of waste management with a holistic approach. Three central aspects are relevant: material systems, single processes to complete process chains as well as their modeling and assessment. With this approach, they conduct thorough technical and economic studies for planning, organization and assessment in the field of secondary raw materials. This makes them one of Europe’s leading professorships in applied research in the waste management sector.

To implement this approach, the I.A.R. possesses an extensively equipped technical laboratory. Experimental setups from laboratory to pilot plants scale allow them to carry out application-oriented research and development. Their staff is trained in aspects of engineering-science and practical considerations and commands broad experience in their field of research. This is essential for the successful implementation of innovative research projects at national and European level.

Welcome to EURELCO

EURELCO is an open, quadruple helix network that supports the required technological, legal, social, economic, environmental and organisational innovation with respect to the development and implementation of a Dynamic Landfill Management (DLM) framework. The DLM framework includes resource recovery-driven Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) as one of its most advanced components, thereby supporting the transition to a resource efficient, circular, low-carbon economy. Are you a relevant actor working on DLM or ELFM?
