Tiivistelmä:

Refractory metals (tungsten, tantalum, rhenium, molybdenum and niobium) are highly strategic metals. The objective of MSP-REFRAM is to establish a long-lasting multi-stakeholder platform which will carry out a comprehensive study of the whole value chain of key refractory metals including mining, processing, recycling and final applications (and potential substitution opportunities) in relation with the crosscutting aspects: policy/society, technology and market. Total eight work packages are included. WP1 is expected to function as the multi stakeholder platform and will assess the current and future selected metal needs of European industry. Based on the evaluation of primary resources of five refractory metals, in WP2, the existing technologies of mining, mineral processing and extractive metallurgy will be reviewed and the innovative technologies will be investigated, and the wastes including mineral processing tailings and metallurgical slags will be evaluated. The main objective of WP3 is to address the recovery of refractory metals in metallic or oxide form existing in waste (old mine tailings and industrial waste) and reduce the amount of waste put in landfill. The objectives of WP4 include: identification of the existing recycling technologies and gaps to be addressed; identification of barriers to refractory metals recycling; determination of applications where recycling may present a significant opportunity, and WP5 is on the concepts and scenarios of substitution. The knowledge management, capacity, dissemination, communication, and management of the consortium are distributed in WP6, WP7 and WP8.
