Planning support for application BIOMET II
|Coordinator||RISE RESEARCH INSTITUTES OF SWEDEN AB - SP Energi och Bioekonomi, Borås|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||November 2016 - May 2017|
|Venture||The strategic innovation programme for mining and metal recovery – STRIM|
Purpose and goal
The goal with the planning project is to gather Swedish mining waste- and water management industry with an international multidisciplinary expert group around biotech innovation with sulfate reducing bacteria for economically feasible more resource efficient and more environmentally friendly metal production from primary and secondary mining.
Expected results and effects
The new international network of different actors from the value chain in two different market sectors and the created prerequisites for commercialisation of the different aspects of the bioprocess, is expected to accelerate the implementation and development of bioprocess as well as the development of new business cases for the technology development actors involved.
Planned approach and implementation
To reach the goals the current network of the partners and further actor analysis will be used. Another task is to perform a feasibility study with the aim to create prerequisites for future commercialization and illuminate economical driving forces for industry and innovators to take an investment risk in future projects. Through these activities and through exchange and integration of ideas and competences the consortium has made one application to EIT Raw Materials for water management of primary mining and another to ERA-MIN for secondary mining.
