Nader Akil (PNO) and Lourdes Yurramendi (Tecnalia) presented the CROCODILE project, and its latest achievement and innovation potential in the EASME session H2020- Innovations and innovators along the raw materials Value chain. The session was opened with an introduction by EU representatives about the role and impact of raw materials, particularly critical raw materials, in supporting the European green deal ...Read More »
Ioanna Maria Pateli and colleagues from the University of Leicester used Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) to extract various metal oxides. Read more about their work which was published in Green Chemistry.Read More »
In a new paper published in Hydrometallurgy, researchers from VTT and Boliden developed a bioleaching process to recover cobalt from low-grade sulphide tailings. The work received funding from the EU NEMO project.Read More »
New paper! Sulfur-enhanced reductive bioprocessing of cobalt-bearing materials for base metals recovery
Read the paper by Ana Laura & colleagues from Bangor University and Natural History Museum (UK), partners in the CROCODILE project: they developed a bioprocess for recovery of base metals, mainly cobalt and nickel, from oxidised ores and waste materials using a consortium of acidophilic bacteria.Read More »
“Solvent extraction at Chalmers has given us a new insight, figuratively speaking it is like a new form of vision”, says Mark Foreman, Associate Professor in Nuclear Chemistry/Industrial Materials Recycling and one of the authors behind a scientific paper recently published in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics.Read More »
Dr Ana Laura Santos and Prof. Barrie Johnson from Bangor University, were given the ‘Best Poster’ Award in the field of mineral bioprocessing. The prize was awarded at the 23rd International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium (20-23 October 2019) in Fukuoka, Japan.Read More »
In March 2015 the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy (JSM) launched its first issue. Now, just more than 5 years, JSM obtained its first Impact Factor. With a score of 2,109, the journal ranks second among TMS journals for 2019.Read More »
SOLVOMET/SIM² KU Leuven researchers developed a novel solvometallurgical approach to recover cobalt from Li-ion battery cathode materials. This work was supported by EU H2020 CROCODILE and published in the journal Green Chemistry.Read More »
