The project aims at establishing and developing innovative technologies for the sustainable extraction of CRM from mining waste, with a focus on Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) strategic area.
INCO-Piles 2020 is a two-years project (1 January 2020 – 31 December 2021) and among other technical activities, it comprises the organization of two round tables. During these two events, experts, both from the European and International level, will have the possibility to meet and exchange their knowledge.
