4.4 Recovery of raw materials from End-of-life products
BBU announces is interest in submitting a proposal as project coordinator and/or partner in the following topics of the ERA-MIN3 join call:
Topic 3. Processing, Production and Remanufacturing
3.1. Increase resource efficiency through recycling of residues or remanufacturing of used products and components (Scrap metals)
Topic 4. Recycling and Re-use of End-of-Life products and assets
4.4: Recovery of raw materials from End-of-life products
We propose a novel concept regarding the development of an innovative and eco-friendly process for the recovery of Cu or other base metal from e-waste, which has the technological potential to resolve simultaneously other environmental problems related to the power sector.
We are open and flexible to adapt our participation in the consortium as is more suitable for all the parties.
Babes-Bolyai University (BBU) is an academic educational public institution aiming to promote and sustain the development of specific cultural components within the local, regional, national and international community. BBU is ranked within the first two university of Romania taking into account the fundamental and applicative research activity. On international level, BBU is one of the most representative universities from Central and Eastern Europe. BBU will be involved with Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, which has gain international recognition in the field of mathematical modeling, simulation, optimization, process integration and scale-up of complex industrial systems. In addition, BBU gain international recognition in the field of processes development for the recovery of metals of economic and industrial interest from WEEE and technico-economic optimization of the environmental impact of various CO2 capture options, proving the beneficial effect of experimental study, modeling, simulation as well as environmental assessment, to obtain global conclusions regarding the feasibility of processes.
