PLATIRUS: PLATInum group metals Recovery Using Secondary raw materials

The PLATIRUS project, funded by the EU in the frame of Horizon 2020 TOPIC SC5-13-2016 grant agreement number 730224, aims at reducing the European deficit of Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), by upscaling to industrial relevant levels a novel cost-efficient and miniaturised PGMs recovery and raw material production process.

The targeted secondary raw materials will be autocatalysts, electronic waste (WEEE) and tailings and slags from nickel and copper smelters, opening-up an important range of alternative sources of these critical raw materials, with the potential to substitute a large amount of primary raw materials which are becoming more and more scarce in Europe.
