Research thesis on lithium battery recycling 

Anna Boyden from the Australian National University recently completed an undergraduate thesis entitled ‘The environmental impacts of recycling portable lithium-ion batteries’. The research involved a life cycle assessment (LCA) of the different technologies used to process used lithium ion batteries, each of which has advantages and disadvantages. The LCA suggested that the most beneficial processes from an environmental perspective are those that utilise low temperatures and are capable of recovering plastic and lithium in addition to metals such as copper, aluminium and nickel.Research thesis on lithium battery recycling Environmental_effects_Anna_Boyden_ABRI.pdf

Critical Non-Fuel Mineral Resources for India’s Manufacturing Sector A Vision for 2030 Study

Sponsoredby National Science and Technology Management Information System (NSTMIS) Department of Science & Technology, Government ofIndia DSTPROJECTRef ID: DST/NSTMIS/05/171/2014-15 July 2016 VAIBHAV GUPTA, TIRTHA BISWAS, AND KARTHIK GANESANmpty title

Press Release: 12 Critical Minerals to Boost Indian Manufacturing by 2030: CEEW 19 Jul 2016 NEW DELHI, INDIA (19 July, 2016) – Twelve critical minerals could play an important role in the success of the Make in India programme and the sustainable growth of the Indian economy, according to a study released today by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), a leading policy research organisation. The study, supported by the s on the heels of the National Mineral Exploration Policy, 2016 (NMEP) unveiled earlier this month, which focuses on prioritisation of regional and detailed exploration critical minerals of importance to industry and national security. NMEP 2016 also includes a proposal to establish the autonomous NCMT to address mineral exploration challenges in the country through collaborative research and capacity building programmes.

Quest to validate "Selective Thermal Sulphation (STS)" process at scaled-up commercial product levels 

Quest Rare Minerals Ltd. (TSX:QRM) is pleased to announce that it has concluded a Contribution Agreement (the "Agreement") with Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC). Under the terms of the Agreement, SDTC will commence disbursement of the $4.9 million grant in accordance with the milestones agreed with the Company. SDTC grant was awarded to support Quest's operation of a large pilot plant to produce mixed rare earth metal oxides. The objective of the pilot plant project is to establish and confirm the process parameters and in particular Quest's "Selective Thermal Sulphation (STS)"1 process at scaled-up commercial product levels. Quest has developed an industrial process that efficiently and cost effectively produces high purity mixed rare earth metal oxides from both mined ore from its Strange Lake Complex property and phosphor powder recovered from fluorescent light bulbs, helping solve a major environmental problem for landfills.

Critical Raw Material Recovery Networks at EASME WEEE Cluster Meeting

Critical Raw Material Recovery Networks at EASME WEEE Cluster Meeting
Posted on 6th July 2016 by siwan smith
On 9th June 2016 Lucy Cooper (WRAP) and Susanne Coles (KTN) joined other related EU projects in Brussels to attend an EASME WEEE cluster meeting on harmonising the production and storage of data for WEEE in the urban mine organized by H2020 project ProSUM.

Marco Recchioni (EASME), who introduced the day, was followed by Daniel Cassard (BGRM) leading through the development of the EU-UMKDP and Jaco Huisman (UNU) talking about classifying and characterising the urban mine, work tackled by ProSUM highlighting key issues in developing an INSPIRE compliant knowledge data platform.

Next the LIFE project Critical Raw Material Recovery (Lucy Cooper, WRAP), H2020 project EWIT (Georg Kanitschar, TUW), COST Action ReCreew (Clayton Burger, University of Oldenburg) and H2020 project SMART GROUND (Marco de la Feld, ENCO) shared their approaches and methodologies to characterise EEE, WEEE and waste containing WEEE.

The presentations sparked plenty of discussions between the projects and representatives from DG GROW, DG Env, DG Connect and DG RTD covering aspects such as uniform adaption and long term provision of a single database system and its value to end-users. Several actions were agreed to pave the way for increased collaboration between related projects and with the EC.

ProSUM | Prospecting Secondary raw materials in the Urban mine and Mining wastes

ProSUM | Prospecting Secondary raw materials in the Urban mine and Mining wastes | Raw Materials Scarcity | Scoop.it
EThe ProSUM Project aims to provide an inventory of secondary raw materials, particularly critical raw materials, arising in WEEE, end-of-life vehicles, waste batteries and mining wastes. This inventory will support industry, researchers and policy makers in their decision making processes. Through our Information Network we aim to engage with these stakeholders in the project. The project is contributing to the Strategic Implementation Plan, developed by the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials, by building an EU raw materials knowledge base.mpty description
