Case Studies


METALLICO will demonstrate in four different case studies that the (critical) metals lithium, cobalt, copper, mangan and nickel can be sustainably produced and recovered by upscaling the five METALLICO processes in different industrial sites, from lab scale to an industrially relevant environment.



Case Study 1

COOL+ Process for primary sources (Li) expoitation


Case Study 2

TAILCO and PURGES processes for secondary sources (Co) ecploitation


Case Study 3

CONI process for secondary sources (Co-Ni-Cu) expoitation


Case Study 4

COMAN process for secondary sources (Co-Mn-Cu) exploitation
