Materials scarcity - and answers


Recovery, in its sense of "recycling" and "reprocessing", is the contemporary order of the day - assuring supplies of mineral resources is gaining ever more importance, in all industries. Rising feed materials prices and the increasing scarcity of economically exploitable primary resources are generating ever greater potentials for the processing of waste for the recovery of useful materials. This is also apparent in the amendment to the Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act passed by Germany's federal cabinet in March of this year, implementing the European Waste Framework Directive in German law. Here, for the first time, recovery is assigned a higher ranking than thermal valorisation. No less than 65 % of all residential waste is to be recycled, and 70 % of all construction and demolition waste processed via the materials recovery route, by the year 2020: a challenge to both research, development and industry! The methods and materials available for this purpose are both diverse and numerous. The following articles show what reputable German and European companies nowadays mean by "recycling management". Whether scrap or glass recycling, the reprocessing of flooring materials for reuse, or the development of machines for the recycling industry, one rule is constant: never recycling at any price but, instead, strictly on sound economic, ecological and legal principles. And the industry can anticipate yet more challenges in the context of adherence to new legal requirements resulting from amendment of the landfill regulations.

The technical journal AT recovery provides detailed information on all facets of the recovery and recycling of reusable materials. The focuses are the reprocessing of electronics and metal scrap, glass recycling and the reprocessing of wood, plastic, domestic and all types of industrial waste. The central emphasis at all times is on reuse as secondary materials. The journal is published in English and German language and is distributed worldwide.
