Welcome to the final seminar of the project BIOMIMIC
Please join or final seminar November 24th where we present the interesting results from the BIOMIMIC project.
Closed gap between academia and industry
The BIOMIMIC project is in its final stage after 2,5 years of working with converting complex waste to valuable recourses. Erik Rosebaum at MTC gives us his thoughts about the project. Erik Rosebaum works at MTC, which is an environmental tech company that takes...
Possible to apply the findings of BIOMIMIC in an industrial context
The goal of BIOMIMIC has been to convert complex waste to valuable recourses. Susana Reichel at Geo Freiberg, a SME with focus on the mining industry, thinks the project has been a valuable project to take part in. – As we are focusing on consultancy toward the mining...
New manuscript from the BIOMIMIC project published
A new manuscript from the BIOMIMIC project is published, which describes the recovery of Vanadium through adsorption from alkaline residue leachate.
Potential Contribution of the BIOMIMIC Technology to European Metal Supply
Raw materials are crucial to the economy and well-being in Europe. Reliable, economical and environmentally sound access to raw materials has therefore been a growing concern in recent years ¬– but for many raw materials, Europe is dependent on imports from other continents.
Removal of vanadium from aqueous solution using a red mud modified sawdust biochar
Many metals are now considered “critical” because of demand, their geographical concentration and the political stability of supply. But with limited options for supply there has been an examination of other potential sources, in particular recycling of these metals....
Developing technology to treat sulfate-rich wastewater
Sulfuric acid is the most used industrial chemical by amount and by number of applications. Its precursor sulfide is also present in the ore and reacts with oxygen to generate sulfate. Naturally, almost all these industrial applications generate sulfate-rich...
Sulphate reduction with bacterias
Sulphuric acid is by far the most used industrial chemical by amount and by number of applications. Naturally, almost all these industrial applications generate sulphate-rich wastewater. Such a process water if released into an un-regulated, un-controlled environment can produce highly reactive, corrosive, and toxic hydrogen sulphide gas into the environment.
Quantification and characterization of metals in from bauxite leachate and IMSW bottom and fly ashes
With escalating demand of metals, an increasing global population and rapid technology development, Europe is confronted with the challenge to secure a sustainable metal supply to its industry and secure jobs.
Praise for presentation at IBS in Japan
BIOMIMIC was recently presented at the 23 International biohydrometallurgical symposium in Fukuoka in Japan.
BIOMIMIC is an ERA-MIN II success story
Raw Materials Week in Brussel – and the BIOMIMIC project was presented at the success story session.
The BIOMIMIC consortium welcomes a new partner
MTC – Miljötekniskt center AB – replaces the Swedish cleantech company Flocazur as a partner in the BIOMIMIC consortium.
Metals worth billions in bauxite leachate and ashes
Resources that could be recycled are currently used as landfill. A report from the BIOMIMIC project shows the amount of metals and their value in money.
“Cooperation will be necessary to succeed”
Great fun! That is the project leader Karin Willquist’s spontaneous comment on how it feels to lead the BIOMIMIC project.
“We complement and strengthen each other”
The BIOMIMIC kickoff 12-13 June was a very positive meeting showing the strong commitment of the project partners.
