On March 1, 2016 the group of 21 participants of the 39th UNEP/UNESCO/BMUB International Postgraduate Course on Environmental Management for Developing and Emerging Countries (EM39) set out with Dr. Lohmann to visit several recycling facilities. This was part of the waste management and circular economy module of the course.
First, we visited the waste collecting center for hazardous waste, bulky waste, electronic waste and other kinds of waste with waste consultant Mr. Alexander Winkelmann.
Secondly, we visited the Biologic Mechanic Waste treatment plant run by Dresdner Abfallverwertungsgesellschaft mbH.
Outcomes of the sorting process:
There, we also had a lecture on waste management in the city of Dresden by Mr. Alexander Winkelmann.
The third place we visited: the mineral waste sorting and recycling facility of Nordmineral Recycling GmbH & Co. KG.
Then we visited Electric and Electronic Scrap Dismantling and Sorting Lebenshilfe, inpuncto Werkstätten with Mr. J. Wittkowske.
In here they have a special project in which disabled people dismantle electronic waste.
