Team CORE is a student team at the Eindhoven University of Technology, currently working on the concept of elementary retraction. This technique will provide us with a chance to create a zero age, in which waste is the raw material of tomorrow.

The technique is based on our own planet. By using the three chemical equilibria; reductor-oxidator, endotherm-exotherm, and acid-base in the right way, it is possible to retrieve the elements in their pure form, from the e-waste that is put in.
