Development of an innovative sustainable strategy for selective biorecover of critical raw materials from Primary and Secondary sources

Project description

Biorecovery of critical raw materials

Europe depends almost 100 % on imports from China, South Africa and Russia for rare earths, magnesium and metals from the platinum group. The EU-funded BIORECOVER project will develop a sustainable and safe process based on biotechnology for the selective extraction of a range of critical raw materials from primary and unexplored secondary sources. The process will be based on the integration of three main stages to reach the expected recovery rate (90 %), selectivity (95 %) and purity (99 %): metal impurity removal, metal mobilisation through microorganisms, and metal recovery. To achieve its aims, the project has established a multidisciplinary consortium covering the whole value chain from seven different countries.
