>> REProMag granted with the German Raw Material Efficiency Award <<
At the end of 2017, REProMag was nominated in the last round of canditates for the German Raw Material Efficiency Award, a competition organised by the German state agency for raw materials (Deutsche Rohstoffagentur, DERA) and which only considers outstanding examples of advances in raw materials and material efficiency.
We made it - On 25 January 2018, our coordinator OBE Ohnmacht & Baumgärtner GmbH & Co.KG received the award in the name of our entire consortium. REProMag's innovations and its contribution to higher sustainability in the production of permanent rare-earth magnets convinced the 14 experts of the jury who represented science, industry and society. REProMag was elected among a wide range of further exciting projects concerning the recycling of metals, plastics, magnets or car and plane parts. Further two SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and a research organisation were awarded: Cronimet Envirotec, BTS GmbH and Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA.
