Environmental biotechnology and hydrometallurgy for resource recovery

Creating economically and environmentally sustainable processes for resource recovery from primary and secondary raw materials is one of the challenges in realizing a circular economy. We are performing research aiming at strengthening the development of novel techniques and processes for resource recovery. This includes using biochemical tools for resource recovery from wastewater and hydrometallurgy for recovery of valuable elements from waste electrical and electronic equipment and other waste streams (e.g. batteries and red mud).
