The ambitious vision of EIT RawMaterials will be realised by the creation of a structured collaboration within the Knowledge Triangle, which is the basis of the KIC model. A structured dialogue between academia, research institutes and business will facilitate an exchange of needs, ideas, research results and best practices. New entre- and intrapreneurs, with innovative ideas, will be supported to turn their ideas into business opportunities through our innovation system. This approach will leverage impact through synergies and will provide a powerful way of maximising opportunities in the RM sector and securing RM supply for Europe. Operationally the projects are managed through the co-location centres, which also support the partners in their strive for new, innovative projects.

AMCO: Automated Microscopic Characterisation of Ores

The project aims at the production and marketing of an innovative, low-cost and user-friendly, automated system for the microscopic characterisation of ores, to improve the geometallurgical performance and to reduce the environmental impact. The solution builds on previous development of the CAMEVA System (UPM, AITEMÍN) and is based on reflected light microscopy. Partnership: 2 universities, […]

AVAR: Added Value Alumina Refining

The main objective of the project is to produce a number of scarce raw materials for the European economy from wastes from the alumina refining industry. The project will pilot the capture of high purity gallium and vanadium from upstream spent Bayer liquors whilst improving alumina yield within the Bayer process. Gallium has extensive use […]
