Chair of Waste Processing Technology and Waste Management // Montanuniversitaet Leoben

The Chair of Waste Processing Technology and Waste Management (AVAW)

Dear visitor!

Du to the current covid-19 situation in Austria, the whole Montanuniversitaet Leoben is closed from March 16th, 2020. Unfortunately, it is yet not possible to say when the AVAW staff will be physically available on the chair again.

In the above mentioned period, all physical courses and exams of Montanuniversitaet Leoben will not be held.
We are working on an alternative form of knowledge transfer (e.g. e-learning or recording of courses) for our AVAW-courses.
After the decision / completition of the alternative, an information email will be sent to the students, which are registered for the respective course.

If you have any questions about teaching or other topics (e.g. research projects), please send your inqiury electronically to avaw@unileoben.ac.at.
If an answer is not possible electronically, we will contact you by phone. Therefore, please include a telephone number in your request.

If you would like to send an inquiry directly to a specific member of the chair, you find the email address and a mobile number in the section „Team“.

We ask for you understanding.
Please stay healthy!

With best regards
Your AVAW-team

Welcome to the website of the chair AVAW!

Production and consumption without waste are impossible. However, we can reach a high degree of resource efficiency and environmental protection by modern waste management. Therefore, a systematic approach, the consideration of the whole value added chain, consequent circulation of matter and energy as well as technological innovations are required.

Using „waste as a resource“ without uncontrolled release of contaminants is one of the challenges for environmental engineers.

Together with our partners we conduct numerous research projects dealing with material and energy recovery as well as environmentally friendly waste treatment. Environmental engineers with their wholistic mind and technological knowledge, which are educated at the Montanuniversität, are well equipped for these tasks. 

The website shows which fields of teaching and research are offered at our chair. I wish you joy and information.
