The Montanuni Leoben and the Frequency Festival in St. Pölten are joining forces this year when it comes to recycling. Melted down aluminum cans will be turned into lasting souvenirs for visitors.

Collecting and implementing ideas is the motto of the University of Leoben. Last year, around 30 young scientists made their way to St. Pölten for the Frequency Festival, not to have a big party, but with a clear mission: to further raise environmental awareness through sustainable processes. The "Upcycling Live Project" was worked on for around a year.

It has now been presented just in time for the start of the festival on August 14. Around 30,000 beverage cans will be collected at the festival and some of them will be processed on site in the new mobile plant - namely melted down and turned into valuable souvenirs: Visitors can mint a coin from them and take them home as a souvenir. The project is an original addition to existing recycling measures.

Delighted with sustainable project 
"Visitors will celebrate the project," says Frequency organizer Harry Jenner, who is delighted with the idea. "We need and want experiments," Jenner has had sustainability in mind for years. "Recycling is a core topic at Montanuniversität and the project is an important milestone," says Rector Peter Moser.
