As part of the cooperation with the Fraunhofer Research Institute for Materials Recycling and Resource Strategies IWKS, a subcontract was assigned for the management and realization of research projects in the context of separation and reutilization of complex material composites. The research focusses on sensor-based sorting of these composites for the recovery of high-quality secondary raw materials. In cooperation with IWKS staff, experimental data acquisition for processes of sensor-based sorting and material separation are carried out, with the subsequent data analysis via advanced methods. In connection with current research projects, model-based representations of sorting problems as well as systemic considerations of complete process chains and material cycles are to be developed.
