ION4RAW is an international initiative which brings together 13 partners from 7 countries, from EU: Spain, France, UK, Norway, Germany, Italy, and Belgium; as well as Peru. The consortium is strongly industrially driven as almost 60% of partners are private companies (1 large industry and 7 SMEs). Aside from this, the trans-national dimension of mining and mineral processing companies involved provides an additional feature to the consortium.

IDENER is a high-tech research-intensive SME originally rooted in a leading Systems and Control Engineering R&D group at the University of Seville’s School of Engineering. One of its most distinguishing traits is the sound scientific background of its research team, which is now specialized in a number of disciplines: chemical engineering, electrical and computer science, systems and control engineering, industrial engineering and telecommunications engineering.
The value of this team is further supported by more than 25 works published in book format and more than 300 international journal articles, extensive participation in top-level research initiatives, and 2 patents to date. IDENER aims to incorporate advanced design and optimization tools and skills from the early development phases of new systems to process scale-up and prototype demonstration.
