7th BMBF Forum for Sustainability
Research for Sustainability - International
2 - 4 November 2010, axica, Berlin
C7 Germany as a Location for Metal Production
got to Session Results
11:00 - 12:30
German (English translation)
In this session, selected projects from the BMBF funding programme "
r2 - Innovative Technologies for Resource Efficiency - Resource-Intensive Production Processes
" present their research. The focal point is on projects which work on primary or secondary metal production. Besides approaches for optimising core production processes in metal industry, the session will also show work on how to improve the exploitation of side products and on the role of interlinking materials flows.
Session Moderation Deike, Rüdiger University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany Presentations Innovation leap through Strip casting Schmidt-Jürgensen, Rune Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH, Germany Improved Resource Efficiency in the Converter Steel Production by Phosphorus Enrichment Drissen, Peter FEhS - Institut für Baustoff-Forschung e.V., Germany Networking of Material Flows through the Example of Dezincification Gock, Eberhard TU Clausthal, Germany Recovery of high-quality metal fractions from shredder sand Duwe, Christian TU Clausthal, Germany Session Results Research priority areas for the foreseeable future
The improvement of recycling of expensive metals out of complex composed waste materials
The development of metal production processes with improved productivity due to higher sophisticated control units and resultant lower losses
The uses of waste materials in other processes to create an ecological and economical benefit
Necessary framework conditions to foster international cooperation for sustainable development
Scientific and industrial global network for sustainable development
Exchange lectures about sustainable development and processes in a global university network to teach students in different countries
International conferences like FONA with small working groups Other important issues or topics discussed during the session
The loss of valuable metals because of an increasing tendency to use old cars in other parts of the world
Which technical possibility really exist, to get back elements like rare earth metals, if they are regular distributed in small amounts in electronic and other products.
