EXCEED - project launched
Approaches of the project are based on multi-metal/mineral and zero-waste mining-and-refining perspective that adopt a mineral-centric, integrated methodology via the application of a first-of-its-kind predictive and forensic geo-metallurgy, supported by enhanced in-line characterization tools and the development of digital twins.
The project (2023-2026) is coordinated by VTT and funded by EU Horizon. Project consortium consists 15 partners from different parts of Europe.
