Main roles in the project

  • establish a near zero-waste approach of the whole process by recycling non-metallic residues obtained from the magnetic and gravimetric separation

  • establish a strong and self-sustaining network of EAF and CF dust value chain

  • to assess the potential environmental, economic and social impacts of the EAF and CF dusts treatment processes taking into consideration the whole life cycle of the potential new products

  • establish regular cooperation and mobility scheme between project partners and their staff working on topics of Zn and other commercial compounds’ extraction from EAF and CF
