Friedrich should buy these by-products, but he could not find sellers, prices or qualities online. He did not like to buy something he does not know and cannot compare.
Claus and Friedrich spent a lot of time to discuss why some markets for secondary materials are invisible how bad that is for the industries to pay for disposal of materials which can be used elsewhere.
