Genuine breakthroughs in hydrometallurgy will not come from the use of neoteric solvents like ionic liquids or deep-eutectic solvents, but rather from a deep understanding of hydro-processes at a molecular level. Hydrometallurgy needs to evolve to low-energy-input circular hydrometallurgy.
SOLVOMET ISC offers state-of-the-art analytical, lab-scale and mini-pilot-scale infrastructure for the development and optimisation of circular hydrometallurgical unit operations (e.g. leaching, solvent extraction…) and/or comprehensive flowsheets.
Development of (circular) hydrometallurgical flowsheets; Mini-pilot validation; Thermodynamic modelling; Advanced leaching processes; Hydrometallurgical applications of SX & IX; Chemical & mineralogical characterisation; Forensic hydrometallurgy
