Project Description

Title: Increasing Functional Recycling by Real-Time Analysis - Argos -
Project Type: No information
Sponsorship: BMBF
Duration: 01.05.2016 - 30.04.2019
Partner: FH Münster, TU Berlin, LLA Instruments GmbH, Steinert Elektromagnetbau GmbH, NOEX AG, TSR Recycling GmbH & Co. KG-Deutschland


In order to increase the functional recycling of main and trace metals, a real-time analysis system for the characterisation of metal-rich processing products "ARGOS" is to be designed and implemented in this project, and the application of this system to actors in the value chain is to be tested. ARGOS is based on the combination of a continuous, sensor-based particle characterisation with mathematical derivations taking into account empirically known material properties. The scope of the characterization is based on the specifications and requirements of the downstream metallurgical processes (Fe and NE metallurgy) and includes information on

- the content of the main constituents iron, aluminium and copper, including characteristic alloys,
- on the contents of precious metal-bearing recyclable materials and alloying metals of strategic economic importance,
- about non-metallic impurities (organic, ceramic and glass) and
- to physical data such as color, surface structure, shape, piece weights, etc..
