Simply for its sheer size, the American waste management market is a worthwhile target for export-oriented manufacturers and know-how providers.

Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBT
© Wasteconsult international (5/2017)
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.

Influence of various parameters on Libs for the application to sorting

LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) is thought to be one of the best analytical methods to achieve the mutual separation of the non-ferrous mixed metals, because the LIBS could identify most of the elements involving light ones with high accuracy.

High value recycling of refractories into the production of new refractories is currently limited due to a shortage of high purity raw materials.

Chemical Imaging: A powerful Tool for Sorting Applications and Process Analysis in the Mining and Food Industries
© I.A.R. - Institut für Aufbereitung und Recycling an der RWTH Aachen (2/2016)
Chemical Imaging is today an established technology for many sensor based sorting applications. Unifying the advantages of laboratory based (near infrared NIR) spectroscopy and spatially resolved product information known from machine vision it also bears a great potential as process analysis technology (PAT).

Bag of visual words — A computer vision method applied to bulk material sorting
© I.A.R. - Institut für Aufbereitung und Recycling an der RWTH Aachen (2/2016)
Every bulk material sorting machine uses classification: objects are either discarded or accepted into one or more bins. In a classical system, both the features and the classifier are constructed by a vision engineer. While successful in the past, this approach is reach-ing its limits.

An Empirical Approach for More Effective Recycling of Electronic Components in WEEE
© I.A.R. - Institut für Aufbereitung und Recycling an der RWTH Aachen (2/2016)
During the last 15 years, the sales figures of consumer electronics such as computers or smartphones have been increasing massively. Similarly, the resulting electronic waste has been growing significantly.

Automated Segmentation of Electronic Components on Waste Printed Circuit Boards

Electronic components in particular on printed circuit boards contain a variety of different noble metals and rare earth elements. Recovering these chemical elements with high efficiency poses a considerable challenge, but becomes increasingly important in the light of diminishing resources and increasing sales figures of consumer electronics.
