Tangible and measurable social, economic and environmental benefits
During the lifetime of the REECOVERY project, a broad range of significant outputs and quantified achievements will be delivered in search of the most effective and efficient way to reach the main goal: to recover critical raw materials from mining wastewater.
REECOVERY will address the challenge of transforming metal-influenced acid water, generated in mining and hydrometallurgical activities, into a novel source of secondary raw materials and critical raw materials (CRM).
Main outputs and achievements
Develop full-scale technologies
for REE oxalates recovery
Demonstrate metal sulfide recovery technologies
Demonstrate and validate the quality standards
of the recovered raw materials to cover the whole value chain
Develop suitable business models
to ensure the commercialization of the secondary raw materials and the R&R treatment train
Recovery of these materials is expected to be (per m3):
of reclaimed water
