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.
REDUCE IMPACT OF INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITIES
ENSURE CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS SUPPLY
PROMOTE CIRCULAR ECONOMIES
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).
