INTMET is a European funded project titled. “Integrated innovative metallurgical system to benefit efficiently polymetallic, complex and low-grade ores and concentrates” (https://www.intmet.eu), and concentrates – as the titles indicates – on the difficult task to recover valuable metal from low-grade and complex ores. We will develop three innovative hydrometallurgical processes (atmospheric, pressure and bioleaching), and novel more effective metals extraction techniques (e.g. Cu/Zn solvent extraction and electro-winning, chloride media, MSA, etc.) that will be tested at relevant environment aiming to maximise metal recovery yield and minimising energy consumption and environmental footprint.
As part of our dissemination strategy, this newsletter will inform you from time to time about the project and important achievements. Enjoy reading and learn more about the project and the exiting new technologies for metal recovery.
If you have questions or remarks related to the project work, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. We are open to discuss with you.
