Outline of the project:

  • Economy: To investigate “the production of tomorrow” by carrying out biotechnological research for the European mineral extractive industry
  • Environment: To develop sustainable biotechnological processes that will reduce the impact of mining & metallurgical activities
  • Technology: To integrate various innovative biotechnological processes for the recovery of metals from primary and secondary materials (ores and concentrates, and mining wastes, slags, scrap, and combustion/power plant ashes, respectively)
