Metals and minerals can be produced and recycled from challenging ores and secondary materials in a sustainable way.
Key facts about hydrometallurgy
Battery and high-tech metal needs for the carbon-neutral society grow exponentially. Hydrometallurgy allows us to make the most of existing resources and improve circularity.
We can extract more from complex low-grade materials, minimize mining waste and turn side streams into valuables.
VTT offers excellent research infrastructure and piloting facilities. VTT’s Bioruukki offers unique expertise, modelling and piloting capabilities under one roof.
