Education, research, technology transfer for the recycling sector


Stand in the sector education, research, technology transfer in the recycling sector at IFAT

If we wish to safeguard the basic needs of mankind and avoid polluting the environment, we need practical technical and structural innovations more now than ever before. Scientific institutions around the world are involved in the search for new ways to handle our finite resources more responsibly.

  • Which new systems and procedures could help bridge the ever-widening gap that exists between the supply and demand of raw materials?
  • How could industrial procedures be designed so that they require a minimal amount of energy and resources?
  • How can we get hold of the difficult to access materials contained in a lot of waste?
  • How can environmental policy goals and legal requirements be realized in practice?

These are questions and challenges where universities, research institutes, and other scientific and economic catalysts can all make essential contributions to a solution. They are presenting their ideas and projects at IFAT.
