Raw Materials and Recycling

In future-compatible economies, the needs of the present are to be met so that the needs of the succeeding generations are not blocked. The goals are the resource-conserving production, the longevity of the products as well as re-use and re-cycling. Following the model of the material circuits, it is now also the case that the materials used in the steel industry are always closed circuits. The aim of the research group is to find new technologies and solutions that can also efficiently utilize the residues and circulants. At the chair of iron and steel metallurgy, the running processes in the laboratory scale are examined and simulated with the aid of pilot plants.
