Welcome to TransZeroWaste
Growing demand for high quality iron ores and scrap as well as abandonment of carbon intensive sintering in the future require novel technological approaches for upgrading of low-grade iron ores and recycling of mill scale.
The development of these technologies will be supported by environmental (using life cycle assessment – LCA – methodology and circularity evaluation) and economic indicators (using life cycle costing – LCC – methodology) to identify the most suitable design options and ensure the improvement of sustainability performances compared to the current technologies.
The outcomes of the TransZeroWaste could contribute to the upgrade of 27 million t/a materials and to the avoided greenhouse gas emissions of sinter plants, corresponding to 4,3 to 9,9 Mt CO2/a.

In Dusseldorf, Germany, the 12 partners of the TransZeroWaste project gathered. The meeting lasted for 2 full days of presentations and discussions. The 7 work packages (WPs) were presented, along with all the developments up to now. The program is still in its early stages, but all partners are excited. The foundations were laid for […]
TransZeroWaste consortium 2nd hybrid meeting started in Düsseldorf (Germany) today. All partners participate, exchanging ideas and knowledge about the project.
