NEMO: Near-zero-waste recycling of low-grade sulphidic mining waste for critical-metal, mineral and construction raw-material production in a circular economy

The NEMO project looks at ways for revalorising mine waste for itsĀ  further use. At Exeter we are using microorganisms to help metals dissolve (bioleaching) from a secondary mineral obtained from Terrafame (Finland) and help to create a more sustainable mining industry by diminishing the amount of waste produced.
