CrEAM: Efficient Extraction and Recycling Technologies


Nov 13th 0018 - Nov 13th 0018

Birmingham, United Kingdom

This first meeting of the CrEAM network will cover a broad spectrum of separation techniques from robotic, chemical, biological and short loop recycling processes for primary and secondary materials. The programme contains invited talks and a networking workshop in order to discuss the challenges for efficient separation processes, the on-going challenges for end of life recycling and foster new collaborations for future research.
