Great events cast their shadows ahead! You have probably already noticed that this recovery issue is more extensive and weightier than our other issues. The reason is obvious – in May IFAT is on the agenda. Many companies have already revealed what they want to present at IFAT. From page 20 you can get a preliminary overview. And recovery team is looking forward to all the meetings and discussions with our readers on-site!
A new process to recycle electroplating waste is described in our article on page 96. With this a combination of three processes is used: selective mechanical pre-treatment with integrated metal separation, melt filtration and the CreaSolv® process. The goal here is to utilize the waste almost completely.
Recovery of phosphorus – potentials for a technical and commercial solution? - this question is covered on page 88. After the kick-off meeting to which the Work Group Circular Econmoy (AK KrW) of the CLEANTEC Initiative East Germany (CIO) had already invited last year, there was now a second meeting on this exciting topic.
Have fun with our “IFAT issue”
