Unit of Mineral Processing

The Unit of Mineral Processing, short AMR, was founded in 1998 and is specialized in processing mineral materials. Head of department is Professor Hermann Wotruba. The department is one of a kind in Germany due to the fact that its research is focused exclusively on mineral resource processing. In addition to technical and economic aspects, the environmental compatibility of the processes also represents a research focus.

Department of Anthropogenic Material Cycles

The Institute for Anthropogenic Material Cycles, short ANTS, which is the successor institute of the Institute for Processing and Recycling and headed by Professor Kathrin Greiff, searches and analyzes solutions to make anthropogenic material flows circular. ANTS combines modeling and evaluation of processing and recycling processes with a view to entire product systems and life cycles in the sense of a circular economy and complements this expertise through technical implementation and demonstration.
