New Research Project for Sustainable Polymer-Bonded Magnets
To date, there is no industrial recycling process to recycle polymer-bonded magnets and the valuable materials they contain after they have been used in applications. A Franco-German consortium is now investigating ways to generate an industrially feasible recycling process and to produce new alternative magnets from more sustainable components.
Fraunhofer IWKS establishes Center for Dismantling and Recycling for Electromobility in Hanau
In Hanau, a sustainable Center for Dismantling and Recycling - Electromobility (German: Zentrum für Demontage und Recycling – Elektromobilität ZDR-EMIL) is being established as part of Fraunhofer IWKS since April 2020 and made available to regional companies from Hesse.
Fraunhofer IWKS Starts Project “BReCycle” on Efficient Recycling of Fuel Cells
Currently, there is no industrial recycling process tailored to fuel cells. As part of the "BReCycle" project, a research consortium is now developing a recycling management concept specifically for PEM fuel cells.
