A holistic view and optimization of the process chain for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment takes place in the course of the thesis. This contemplation enables more advantageous feedstocks for the secondary metallurgy as well as increased yields of precious metals and the recovery of other critical elements. Further possible recycling processes will be identified to return valuable materials contained in the material cycle for selected WEEE groups, which are lost at present.
