Ionometallurgy of primary sources for an enhanced raw materials recovery

Project description

Discovering Europe’s inner wealth

Raw materials offer environmentally friendly, clean technology applications and are essential for the manufacture of new and innovative products, such as photovoltaic systems. Contributing to the EIP Raw Materials Strategic Implementation Plan, the EU-funded Ion4Raw project aims to convert new and currently unexploited resources into reserves. It proposes an energy-, material- and cost-efficient new mineral processing technology that will help in the recovery of by-products from primary sources (such as germanium or indium) and major metals, such as copper, silver and gold. The process is based on the use of deep eutectic solvent ionic liquids and advanced electrorecovery. Ion4Raw is working towards TRL level 5 and the production of a sound systemic solution.
