VTT LaunchPad spin-off incubator team

Hypermine is maximizing resource recovery and minimizing the environmental impact of mining with a unique laser-based hyperspectral mineralogy sensing.

Mining is a critical source of materials for clean technologies and modern living, but the environmental impact of mining is enormous. No easy way exists to meet the demand of society, without destroying the planet. Currently, there are two bad options. One option is to mine less resources and sacrifice the quality of life. Another – sacrifice the environment. Our vision is to provide sensing solutions to enable ore/waste sorting at the earliest and the most valuable point of the mining process, thus, improving resource recovery while decreasing environmental impact.

The technology is patent-pending. Our MVP is developed in a joint agreement with one of the top 5 mining companies in the world.
