Participation desired

Dear readers,

At the end of a busy and eventful year, we look forward to the holidays and hopefully to a quieter time. In order for us to start well into the topics of the new year, we already have a plan for 2020, of course – in the media information at ( you will find our focus topics for our 6 issues in the year 2020. If you want to participate in one of the main topics in the form of a technical or scientific paper, please contact our editorial team!

In this year’s last issue, you will find, among many other topics, a detailed technical report on the „Recycling chain for spent lithium ion batteries“ (p. 24). In this context, the individual treatment steps for material recycling are illustrated in more detail while their efficiency is being discussed.

In the back part of the recovery 06/19, you will find articles in Russian language, since a part of this edition is printed directly in Russia, where it will be distributed to local recycling companies.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year wishes

Dr. Petra Strunk, Editor-in-Chief recovery/Chefredakteurin der recovery
