H2020-CE-SC5-07-2020: Raw materials innovation for the circular economy: sustainable processing, reuse, recycling and recovery schemes

This specific challenge addresses the development of "innovative pilot actions", which is one of the major targets of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials.
Applying a circular economy approach throughout the entire value chain, actions for this topic should address only one of the following sub-topics:
Sustainable processing and refining of primary and/or secondary raw materials,
- Recycling of raw materials from end-of-life products,
- Recycling of raw materials from buildings and infrastructures,
- Advanced sorting systems for high-performance recycling of complex end-of-life products,
- Sustainable metallurgical processes.

Actions should develop and demonstrate innovative pilots for the clean and sustainable production of non-energy, non-agricultural raw materials in the EU from primary and/or secondary sources finishing at Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 6-7.

Type of action: Innovation Action.
Budget: The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 8 million and EUR 13 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately.
