Stadsmijnbouw is de toekomst

May 28, 2017

Urban mining is the future (in Dutch)

Knack, 10 October 2012

Zeldzame aardmetalen komen terecht in tal van producten, zoals gsm’s, laptops, windturbines en elektrische auto’s. Omdat die grondstoffen steeds schaarser worden, moeten we dringend naar alternatieven zoeken. Een van de mogelijkheden is de recyclage van aardmetalen uit gebruikte toestellen, wat urban mining of stadsmijnbouw wordt genoemd.
