Abstract Summary

ekolive offers an ecological biotechnology as a service for upgrading locally available, but non-valuable resources into high-quality raw materials on site. In case of low quality of local deposits caused by metallic impurities ekolive increases the raw materials value, accessibility and price by a low-cost and non-hazardous impurities removal.

Full Abstract

Low quality of local mineral deposits is caused by metallic impurities that dramatically reduce its value and usability. ekolive provides metals removal by bioleaching with zero waste economy without restriction for volume of processed raw materials (RM). Bioleaching is an alternative way of metal extraction and improving raw materials. This effective, economical and environmentally friendly innovative method enables the utilisation of local sources for high-quality demanding end-users.
ekolive´s solution:
•Increases resource efficiency in mineral and metallurgical processes
•Secures sustainable RM supply
•Designes solutions and closing material loops by quality enhancement of mineral raw materials
•Turns non-economic regional local deposits (including tailings) into profitable ones
•Increases the development of the local industry

Impact on the EIT RMs´ value chain is on the edge between upscaling and processing, between “Mines for Modern Society-Innovative technologies for intelligent and sustainable mining” and “Develop and improve Processing-Resource efficiency and safety in mineral and metallurgical processes”. This technology and service respond to Europe´s challenge in securing RM in a sustainable way due to high reliance on imports, increasing consumption and decreasing quality and availability of resources, but also for new processes and technologies in processing that can potentially reshape the idea of what a resource is and secure supplies of RM for the future.
