IMAGINE seeks to enable robots to understand the structure of their environment and how it is affected by its actions. “Understanding” here means the ability of the robot to determine the applicability of an action along with parameters to achieve the desired effect, and to discern to what extent an action succeeded, and to infer possible causes of failure, and generate recovery actions.

Importantly, this scientific objective is pursued in the context of the recycling of electromechanical appliances. Current recycling practices do not automate disassembly, which exposes humans to hazardous materials, encourages illegal disposal, and creates significant threats to the environment and health, often in third countries.

IMAGINE will develop a TRL-5 prototype that can autonomously disassemble prototypical classes of devices, generate and execute disassembly actions for unseen instances of similar devices, and recover from certain failures.

URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH

URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH has been established in 1995 by the owners and managing directors, Peter Heßler and Thomas Gundersdorf.

The business content of URT comprises the engineering, sale and service of recycling plants for electric and electronic scrap (WEEE) and for the disposal of waste refrigerators (CFC). The European regulation WEEE (Waste of Electric and Electronic Equipment) is the basis and guideline for this equipment. For more than 20 years URT has been manufacturing systems for the disposal of cooling units. The recovery and liquefaction of the propellants and refrigerants in the disposal plants have become established processes in Europe during this period. Now plants are also being set up in Asia and South and North America. Frequently these countries do not have suitable plants for the destruction of CFC and the quantities generated during disposal have even had to be transported across continents. This was the reason for URT to develop a new system.

URT can refer to reference plants worldwide on the following continents
– Europe
– South-America
– North- America
– Asia
– Middle East

with representatives in Turkey, Spain, France, Brazil, North-America and Asia.

URT offers solutions for the following fractions:

– cooling devices
– small domestic appliances
– IT-appliances
– CRT and LCD dismantling
– toner cartridges
– printed circuit boards
-plastics from WEEE

The relation with our customers is a partnership in which both parties benefit from each other.
