R&D: Innovative recovery methods for Indonesian deposits

UIT is part of the publicly funded StratOre project. This project investigates the efficient and sustainable extraction of strategic elements from Indonesian ore deposits.

With our partners, we are developing new processing and exploration concepts for the efficient extraction of strategic elements from Indonesian ore deposits.

In doing so, we are focusing on new extraction methods for strategically valuable elements: PGEs (Platinum Group Elements), Co, Ni and Sc from an Fe-Ni laterite.

Laterites (highly weathered rocks) form excellent exploration targets as a natural source and are often located in tropical regions. By working with Indonesian companies, research on current deposits is made possible and a trusting cooperation with international partners is established. Due to UIT's many years of experience and expertise in this field, hydrometallurgical tests are planned at the Dresden site and carried out in a UIT pilot plant in the company's own technical center.
