RWTH Holds "Idea Camp"

Under the direction of IME Process Metallurgy and Metal Recycling and the Cybernetics Cluster IMA/ZLW & IfU, RWTH Aachen held an idea camp on the future challenges of recycling old electric and electronic devices – WEEE. RWTH Rector Ernst Schmachtenberg opened the event.

The objective was to illustrate the current scientific and economic state of WEEE recycling and to develop measures to sensitize society when dealing with raw materials. Around 60 participants created ideas for future projects. During the coming months the suggestions will be brought to the attention of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology and further solidified.
