Reduction_Oxidation_Recycling (RedOxRec)

November 2019 – October 2024

The project aims at providing a working use-case on the recovery of noble metals from production waste of electronics production sites, in order to increase resource efficiency through recycling and this through the development and validation of a small to medium scale and environmental-friendly chemical extraction process based on electrodeposition. The focus lies on the Recovery of raw materials from End-of-life products and the extraction via hydrometallurgical route of Au and Ag and Platinum Group Metals (PGMs, Pd, Pt, Rh, Ir and Ru).
