A new manuscript from the BIOMIMIC project is published, which describes the recovery of Vanadium through adsorption from alkaline residue leachate.
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.
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....
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...
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.
BIOMIMIC was recently presented at the 23 International biohydrometallurgical symposium in Fukuoka in Japan.
Raw Materials Week in Brussel – and the BIOMIMIC project was presented at the success story session.
MTC – Miljötekniskt center AB – replaces the Swedish cleantech company Flocazur as a partner in the BIOMIMIC consortium.
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.
Great fun! That is the project leader Karin Willquist’s spontaneous comment on how it feels to lead the BIOMIMIC project.
The BIOMIMIC kickoff 12-13 June was a very positive meeting showing the strong commitment of the project partners.
