Stage 5 focuses on defining the optimal combination along the different stages to obtain the highest recovery, selectivity, and purity rates for the BIORECOVER process. It aims at developing a BIORECOVER Decision-Making Framework (DMF) that integrates the different treatment stages in a unique tool for easy operation and application. This DMF is a flexible modelling forecasting tool that considers best practices for each targeted CRM. To optimise the process, it identifies the technical performance, health and safety, as well as economic and environmental parameters, while also predicting the metal recovery efficiencies and efforts needed.
