January 29th and 30th, 2020: Two days of productive meetings for the BIORECOVER Project with the consortium partners, ending with the visit of the Mytilineos plant in Greece.
BIORECOVER aims to develop a new sustainable & safe biotechnological process for the selective extraction of a range of Critical Raw Materials from unexploited secondary and primary sources. During those two days, the partners discussed the different milestones and progress of the project in this first phase of development.
MYTILINEOS S.A., one of the consortium partners, is the only vertically integrated bauxite, alumina and aluminum plant in Europe. The consortium partners are working with Mytilineos to selectively extract rare earths from bauxite residue from the greek plant.
