In January we had the successful kick-off of our EIT Raw Materials project AUSOM. The AUSOM project aims at bringing automatic sorting technology for metal alloys based on laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to the market. It will bring a higher quality secondary raw material supply to the European market and meet the identified needs of a robust and cost-effective design that can be incorporated in existing sorting logistics and is capable of sorting aluminium, steel and other metals.
