Ants

Chair of Anthropogenic Material Cycles

Director:

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Kathrin Greiff

Short name:

ANTS

Info:

The core competencies of ANTS lie in the investigation, development and evaluation of secondary raw material systems. In doing so, our work is characterized by a strong practical orientation and by a profound knowledge of methods, concepts and practices of the Circular Economy - especially in the life cycle phase of waste processing. We have extensive expertise in real-world applications and technologies of the recycling and circular economy. Due to the technical equipment available at the institute, investigations and test series can be carried out both at the institute up to demonstration scale and on-site at processing plants.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
