1. Supply of raw materials from exploration and mining
A team of industrial engineers from Freiberg / Germany is interested in contributing to a topic 1 proposal with techno-economic and ecological process evaluations and assessments. We work with classical quantitative methodes of LCA, process simulation and process economics.
Our contributions could be, among others:
- Environmental impact assessment, Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA)
- Economic and ecological appraisal of innovative technologies in the field of primary material processing
- Process simulation, value chain assessments
