Posted on 06.08.2019 by cstallmeister

The rising amount of organically contaminated aluminium scrap confronts the recycling industry with big challenges and offers a considerable savings potential at the same time. The recently granted project \"ReOrgAl\" addresses these tasks and potentials: Minimizing the primary energy demand for thermal pretreatment of organically contaminated aluminium scrap through innovative process optimizations. The project consortium consisting of representatives of experienced aluminium processors and plant constructors as well as employees of the IOB and the IME of RWTH Aachen University met for a joint kick-off meeting in June. Moderated by the project manager IOB, the project procedure was discussed and presented to a representative of the project sponsor (BMWi). Within the framework of the project, the IME is responsible for the melting and pyrolysis tests on a laboratory scale - including the use of microwave technology in continuous operation.
