Tools for Talents children visit E-Waste recycling companies of Müller-Guttenbrunn.
Teaching how exiting science and technology can be is the purpose of an initiative called “T4T – Tools for talents” in which schools and business network initiate and stimulate the interest for technical professions to youth at an early stage.
Two colleagues of the Müller-Guttenbrunn visited the elementary school of Ferschnitz for a workshop about the recycling of E-Waste. During a workshop electrical equipment such as electric irons, radios, play stations and vacuum cleaners were dismantled into their component parts under expert guidance.
The recycling specialists explained the usefulness of the different materials as secondary materials that can be used to produce new products.
After the children have gathered some basic knowledge about the recycling of metal-containing products such as E-Waste,
Günther Höggerl and Paul Lohnecker led an excursion to the 3 of the subsidiaries of Müller-Guttenbrunn Group dealing with the industrial recycling of E-Waste to show how the separation of secondary raw materials works in practice.
With astonished faces and big eyes after so many new impressions, the children returned to school after a truly interesting and exiting morning.
