ARCHE Consulting participates in the Horizon 2020 METGROW+ project

ARCHE participates in the European Horizon 2020 project METGROW+. This 4-year project started in February 2016, aims to develop an industrially viable, flexible “New Metallurgical Systems” Toolbox, which consists of a broad range of already existing and newly developed “metallurgical unit operations”. Economic, environmental and technical assessments of the individual unit operations will be integrated into a general decision framework for selecting the best combination of technologies in a metallurgical system as to obtain the most cost-effective and environmentally-friendly flow sheet for a given low-grade resource. ARCHE plays a key role in the assessment of the energy, water and spatial requirements as well as the health, safety and environmental performance of the technologies and processes, taking into account low-grade ore metals and complex materials specific issues in current LCA methodologies.
