Bilateral projects

Bilateral contract research and consultancy

The main SOLVOMET project model is a direct, bilateral cooperation where the industrial partner or RTD Centre request a specific service from the Centre, based on the provided offer (see SOLVOMET flagship services). These bilateral projects may include (1) Targeted literature reviews; (2.) Consultancy assignments, (3) Lab-scale feasibility studies, (4) Analytical services, (5) Upscaling/mini pilot-scale tests on solvometallurgical leaching, solvent extraction etc. Input materials may vary from urban End-of-Life waste, extractive waste (incl. flotation tailings), industrial process residues such as slags, sludges, ashes or drosses.

For these kind of projects a Research Agreement is set up, in which the terms and conditions are detailed. SOLVOMET gets the support from Leuven Research & Development (LRD KU Leuven) to develop these contracts. As the SOLVOMET team has a lot of experience with this type of projects, we can guarantee an effective and efficient service offer.

The basic principle for this type of bilateral contract research and consultancy is to develop a tailored approach, based on trust between the industrial/RTD partner and the SOLVOMET Centre. To obtain more details we advise you to contact us directly.


Welcome to SOLVOMET

SOLVOMET is KU Leuven’s Centre for Solvometallurgy. SOLVOMET’s mission is to support its industrial and RTD partners in the conceptual and practical development of more sustainable solvometallurgical separation processes and new mining chemicals, which are subsequently tested using state-of-the-art lab-scale and mini pilot-scale experimental facilities.
