Raupe, Cascade Use

by Alexandra Pehlken, Research Group Cascade Use at University of Oldenburg

Cascade Use was awarded the Raw Material Efficiency Award 2018 by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy BMWi. On January 31st 2019 Oliver Wittke, Parlamentarischer Staatssekretär of the BMWi handed over the "Deutsche Rohstoffeffizienz-Preis 2018" to three companies and Cascade Use as only Research Institution of the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg. Cascade Use cooperated with ID Impuls and Callparts recycling to develop the decision tool RAUPE. RAUPE supports the sustainable usage of used car parts.

The research on RAUPE will be continued with OFFIS, as Alexandra is now working at OFFIS.
