Paul Martin Mählitz, M.Sc.



Paul holds a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Technical Environmental Protection from the Technical University of Berlin.

As part of his interdisciplinary studies, he dealt with the interface between technology and the environment. In his bachelor thesis he investigated measurement concepts for the determination of greenhouse gas emissions during the application of palm oil residues in Indonesian agriculture.

His master studies focused on process engineering, waste water and waste treatment as well as environmental management. Paul cooperated in his master thesis with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, Delft, NL and the Bonairian waste management company Selibon N.V., Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles. In this context he investigated "A regional and source-oriented approach of organic waste management - A feasibility study for composting on Bonaire/Caribbean Netherlands".

In 2010 Paul started at the department of waste management (2016 renamed as department of Circular Economy and Recycling Technology) as a student assistant with teaching responsibilities. Since 2014 he has been a research assistant in the areas of teaching and research. His teaching activities include analysis and material characterisation, thermal waste treatment, state of the art and new developments of recycling technologies and recyclability assessment for complex products. In addition, in 2012 and 2014 he was a guest lecturer at UNESCO-IHE, Institute for Water Education, Delft, NL as part of a solid waste management course with a group of international students. 

Since 2014, Paul's projects have dealt with product-centred recycling approaches and mass and substance flow analyses of batteries, old electrical appliances and end-of-life vehicles. Together with Fraunhofer IZM, he worked on the "Environmental impacts of rechargeable lithium batteries for use in mobile information and communication technology (ICT) devices". On behalf of the Stiftung Gemeinsames Rücknahmesystem Batterien (GRS), he investigated "Recycling methods for old batteries against the background of new battery systems". Paul worked in the H2020 project ProSUM on a harmonised European secondary raw material inventory for batteries, waste electrical and electronic equipment, end-of-life vehicles and mining waste for the EU. He is also involved in other projects in the field of resource efficiency.
