Combining laser cleaning and LIBS: fast and precise recycling of metal alloys
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2020)
In respect of a limited amount of raw material, costs, CO2 and waste reduction, high precision metal recycling is getting more and more important these days. Contaminations of the melt with unwanted or outright detrimental elements (e.g. C, S, P, Cu or Pb in steel, Cr or Ni in low-alloy steels, Li in aluminium and so forth) are a huge liability toward the ‘‘alloy-to-alloy’’ recycling goal and essentially the only option in this case, is either costly dilution with clean raw materials, downgrading or worst case scenario discarding.

Development of local municipal solid waste management in the Western Transdanubia region of Hungary

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.

The new Waste Framework Directive and its impact on textile waste

In the course of implementing the circular economy package of the European Union, the Waste Framework Directive was amended recently. Textiles are no longer the poor relation of waste management but have come to the fore.

An efficient procedure of treating municipal solid waste is incineration which enables reduction of the waste volume, and energy recovery during combustion. During this process, fly ashes are produced.

Disposal of British Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in Continental Europe

CUTEC developed within a research project an expert report to estimate and to compare the environmental impact of various options for the removal of municipal solid waste (MSW) in the United Kingdom (UK).

LCA Modelling for the Development of a Simplified Assessment Tool for Food Waste Valorisation and Disposal
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2018)
Food waste is an increasing concern in Europe. Each step in the food supply chain generates side-flows that can be valorised and recycled (e.g. processed to animal feed, producing methane gas in anaerobic digestion) or disposed (e.g. landfilled, discarded to land). These side-flows can have positive or negative economic value, depending on market demand.

Waste Management 4.0 - Optimization of Waste Collection and Recycling Logistics in Irkutsk (Russia)
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2018)
Waste management 4.0 provides the rational use of natural and technical resources, maximized energy saving efficiency, secondary processing of all wastes, and the production of new products, raw materials, or energy from them. Waste management 4.0 is an integral part of the smart city development concept.

Generic Model for the Environmental Assessment of Anaerobic Digestion of Food By-Products and Waste

The generic model can serve as transparent and fair option to compare anaerobic digestion to alternative treatment or disposal options of specific food side-flows for the purpose of a learning tool. The model can be adapted to other side-flows of the food industry if necessary.

Sustainable Approach to Valorise Ashes from MSWI

Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) is a solution adopted by several European countries to reduce the amount of waste landfilled.

Waste-to-Energy Role in Circular Economy Concept - Modelling Approach
