News & Events
Within Task 6.2, the UNIPA and UPC team have been exploring the recovery of additional minerals from exhausted bittern solutions from saltworks using Electrodialysis with Bipolar Membranes (EDBM) technology.
SEArcularMINE project partners and collaborators within WP2 have been busy collecting and processing samples from saltwork sites in Croatia and Slovenia.
As part of WP2 Fabrizio Vicari (ResourSEAs) worked with project partners SOSALT to complete brine sampling collections at the Trapani Saltworks, Sicily. The team had a productive expedition and enjoyed their immersion into an environment where human activities and nature have been intertwined for millennia.
The SEArcularMINE Advisory Board forms a key element of the project’s strategy to ensure that technologies developed are of sufficient benefit to the target end-users to encourage their implementation. Expert representatives of key end-users (Pharma- and Nutraceutical, polymers & materials, energy storage & electronic industries, etc.) provide the project with feedback and input regarding the approach to research and the characteristics of the technology developed. This valuable advice will help SEArcularMINE outputs reach the market faster and ensure that the recovered materials fit the requirements of the target end-users.
