Our ION4RAW partner BRGM presented the ION4RAW process to French national experts during the Scientific days of the PROMETHEE network.

The French national network GDR PROMETHEE was created in 2016 in order to structure the French research on the hydrometallurgical processes for a better management of the non-energetic raw material from mining activities and recycling, and more especially low-grade resources. This network gathers 30 laboratories from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the Bureau of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM), partner of the ION4RAW project.

Scientific days are organized annually by the GdR PROMETHEE, and are open to researchers, engineers, PhD and pos-doctoral students from the academic and industry network, experts in the field of non-energetic raw material management.

This year, our ION4RAW partner BRGM seize the chance of having such a scientific pool of experts to present the ION4RAW project with a presentation « Premiers essais d’évaluation de la disponibilité des éléments traces CRM dans les minerais aurifères et cuprifères européens pour la récupération par ionométallurgie ». The presentation is available online here.

Attendees were interested to learn more on the hydroprocess and know the reagent tested for DES and lixiviation by WP4 but as it is confidential, they were invited to contact the coordinator of the project (Maria Tripiana from Idener) as well as Tecnalia and Sintef for available details and to follow the project newsletter and following publications.

Discussions with external stakeholders will follow this very fruitful event!
