Vision of the Zero Waste Cluster:
Material recovery from low grade, complex ores, wastes and residues requires an integrated approach combining different technologies for pretreatment, metal extraction and residue valorization. The Zero Waste Cluster wants to create services offered by a virtual pool of state-of-the art infrastructure and expertise present at EIT Raw Materials partners, which are frontrunners in sustainable innovation in the different technologies and supporting expertise, in order to facilitate access to capital-intensive infrastructure and expertise across the value chain.
Mission of the Zero Waste Cluster:
The different networks in the Zero Waster Cluster group state-of-the-art infrastructure and expertise related to a specific field of pretreatment, extraction, valorization or supporting expertise such as sustainability assessment within the circular economy. A web-based platform aims at providing tailored solutions for any customer looking for specific infrastructure or expertise, making use of our Zero Waste metallurgical toolbox.
