In the detailed implementation of the CloseWEEE project, Fraunhofer is the lead beneficiary for delivering the following two working packages:

  • Coordination and Management – to ensure a sound coordination and management of the project covering technical,administrative and financial issues, the relation with the EC and the establishment of efficient communication flow and methods.
  • High efficient solvent-based recovery of target polymers from WEEE streams – the main objective of the technical development is the solvent based separation of polymers present in WEEE plastic fractions provided by the advanced separation of halogen and non-halogen polyer fracitons from WEEE streams.
