X-TRIM: X-ray transmission in mining applications

Project duration: 1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018

Objective

The main objective of the project is to take the existing X-ray and sorting technology at least to TRL 7 (system prototype demonstration in operational environment) and to introduce X-ray technology to the RM sector. A prototype will be built and tested with real material first in

The solution (technology)

A prototype will be built and tested with real material first in laboratory environment before setting it up as an at-line system at a mine and finally integrating it into the production line.
