Success for recomine in the BHP Tailings Challenge
With its approach to processing Chilean mining waste, our recomine team made it into the next round (concept development phase) of the BHP Tailings Challenge among the ten best teams.The three-stage innovation competition calls on the participating teams to develop concepts with which residues from copper mining can be significantly reduced.The aim is to reduce the volume of copper waste in the future.The recomine approach is one of ten selected out of 153 global proposals that were submitted in summer 2020.After the opening presentation (Demo Day) on January 19, 2021, BHP will now provide tailings material for experiments in order to test the approach.In the summer of 2021, the teams will submit their test evidence and BHP will select three winning teams for the final phase.
Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF) will celebrate its birthday together with Saxonian Minister President Michael Kretschmer and interested guests on September 9, 2021. The number 10 plays an important role for both the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF). In addition to the 10-year affiliation of the HZDR with the Helmholtz Association, the HIF looks back on 10 very successful years at the research location of Freiberg. Furthermore, the HIF inaugurates its new metallurgy pilot plant on September 9, 2021. The inauguration marks another milestone in the development of a unique campus for resource technology and progresses sustainability steadily at HIF. The HIF will celebrate this progress and cordially invites you!
Eight partner from science and industry participate in the research project “TerZinn – Technologieentwicklung und Erprobung für nachhaltiges Wassermanagement und additive Rohstoffgewinnung am Modellstandort Zinnerzgrube Ehrenfrieders-dorf“: Zinnerz Ehrenfriedersdorf GmbH, G.E.O.S. Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH, Wis-mut GmbH, BIT Tiefbauplanung GmbH, ibes AG, Kurt-Schwabe-Institut für Mess- und Sensortechnik Meinsberg e.V., TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS. The Federal Ministry of Edu-cation and Research (BMBF) funds the project with around one million euros. TER-ZINN belongs to the alliance “recomine – rethinking resources”, which works on the subject of mining waste at the intersection of environmental technology, resource technology and digitalization.
On 18th of February 2021 the recomine-project TERZinn starts as the first of currently eight selected projects of the first recomine-call. Over the next three years, a digital underground measurement system will be developed and tested in the historic Ehrenfriedersdorf mine site. Newly developed sensors will record current information from the incoming mine water and pass it on to a modular water treatment system, which will then decide how heavily the water needs to be treated depending on the water contamination (e.g. with Arsenic). The system will then be further developed for use in the Ore Mountains and around the world, and will sustainably improve water quality in many mining regions.
Young Mining Professionals (YMP) is a growing international association of mining professionals based in major mining centers across the world, that share the goal of advancing the global profile and leadership of the mining and exploration industry. YMP was established to assist participants in obtaining the skills, support and knowledge to successfully advance their careers, develop a network of contacts within the industry, and identify career and mining-related investment opportunities.* The new YMP Switzerland section was founded in early 2021 and started its activities with a Lunch'n Learn webinar format. Philipp Büttner, coordinator and co-founder of recomine, had the honor to give the first presentation in the very first session on recomine and re-mining.
