Circling up the waste processing hierarchy


Cooling compressors 

This project conceptualizes and enables sustainable value chains for reclaimed “waste” materials in the recycling industry. To do so, the aim of this project is to: (1) develop a standardized method for assessing the technical condition of cooling compressors towards reuse and (2) identify key social and environmental sustainability checkpoints for assessing the value chain for these components.
