We generate value in the Recovery of Critical Raw Materials from residues and by-products generated during the production of Copper. Learn more about RECOPPs, supported by EIT Raw Materials.



Goals




REDUCE IMPACT OF INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITIES

ENSURE CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS SUPPLY

PROMOTE CIRCULAR ECONOMIES


The project

RECOPPs aims to transition the environmentally and economically sustainable recovery of added-value raw materials Bismuth (Bi) and Antimony (Sb) with an integrated removal of the hazardous Arsenic (As) from the residues and by-products generated during the pyrometallurgical production of Copper (Cu) to a more relevant setting (from lab to pilot scale).

Consortium

Meet the faces of RECOPPs upscaling. Get to know our young but experienced staff member that will develop and commercialise the technology behind our solution.
