FLAMAC is excited to announce that its SBO project “SMART” has been approved by SIM & VLAIO. SMART stands for Sustainable Metal Extraction from Tailings.
SMART is a strategic basic research project within the long-term SIM MaRes programme on “Materials from Solid and Liquid Industrial Process Residues”. This project is a collaboration of FLAMAC, KU Leuven, VITO, UGent and other Flemish companies. It is a unique project in Flanders as it is fully dedicated to finding zero-waste solutions for tailings, i.e. the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an ore.
