Innovative technologies and concepts for fine particle flotation: unlocking future fine-grained deposits and Critical Raw Materials resources for the EU

Project description

Improving fine particle recovery in froth flotation

Froth flotation is arguably the most important process for separating minerals from gangue. The technique takes advantage of the differences in the hydrophobicity of the materials. However, current flotation technologies are limited in their ability to recover fine particles smaller than 20 µm. The EU-funded FineFuture project aims to advance fundamental understanding of fine particle flotation phenomena, which will lead to the development of ground-breaking recovery solutions. This will help not only unlock new critical raw material deposits but also increase the resource and energy efficiency of current operations where the fines are lost to tailings.
