description: Master Thesis
topic: Development of an energy-efficient melting process for diesel catalytic converter

The current recycling processes of diesel catalytic converters are limited to 5% SiC ceramics at most. By adding printed circuit boards, this content can be reduced, while at the same time copper, contained in these PCBs, serves as a collector phase for precious metals.

job definition:

The main task is the simulation of the thermochemical system with a subsequent validation by means of equilibrium tests under real temperatures. The first test results are then to be confirmed in the near-industrial aggregate (electric arc furnace).
