  • Project EAG2-Rec / 2022

    An innovative technology for WEEE recycling in Ghana

    January 28, 2022

    How can the practice of WEEE recycling in Ghana be improved through a technology transfer from Germany? This question is being addressed by a project led by Fraunhofer UMSICHT and funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment. The aim of the project is to examine how the existing treatment can be supplemented by thermochemical methods and optimised sales channels. This can increase the added value locally and at the same time reduce the environmental and health impacts.
