Towards sustainable mineral and metal industry: ZERO Bauxite Residue and ZERO CO2 from co-production of Alumina, Silica and precipitated Calcium carbonate by the Aranda-Mastin technology

Project description

Novel technology for sustainable supply of raw materials gets closer to TRL 5

Funded by the EU, AlSiCal is an ambitious research and innovation effort to make the metals and mining industry more sustainable. The project will offer a ground-breaking, clean and safe technological solution that will secure European sustainable production of three raw materials – alumina, silica and precipitated calcium carbonate – whilst minimising environmental impact. These raw materials are currently obtained through traditional processes that generate great amounts of CO2 emissions and bauxite residues. AlSiCal will de-risk and further develop the patented Aranda-Mastin technology to reach technology readiness level 5. It will assess the techno-economic feasibility, the potential value creation for Europe, as well as the impact and potential risks based on three key sustainability pillars: economy, society and environment.
