A new cost-efficient mineral processing technology

to recover by-products from primary sources

Joint recovery of by-products

Targeted metals to be recovered as by-products are within Cu-Ag-Au group: tellurium (Te), selenium (Se), rhenium (Re), and molybdenum (Mo), as well as Critical Raw Materials as bismuth (Bi), germanium (Ge), indium (In), cobalt (Co), platinum (Pt) and antimony (Sb). Accompanying major product metals, e.g. copper (Cu), silver (Ag) and gold (Au), may also be recovered by this process.

Our Project

ION4RAW will make an ambitious contribution to the EIP Raw Materials Strategic Implementation Plan unlocking the full potential of Europe’s inner wealth by converting new and currently unexploited resources into reserves.
