Novel Precious Metal Recovery from Waste Streams

Project Details


Humankind is fast approaching the exhaustion of mineral raw material and thus, NoWASTE project aims to develop an economically feasible route for precious metal recover from complicated and impure waste streams. NoWASTE will also go a step further as another aim of the project is to prepare high-quality functional surfaces directly from waste streams, ready for applications such as hydrophobicity. As such, the project is making a step towards real "circular economy" where waste becomes a resource.
