H2020-CE-SPIRE-09-2020: Alternative mineral resources for high volume production (IA)

Proposals should address the development of new high-volume value loops and integrated supply chains through industrial processes enabling the cross-sectorial, symbiotic, use of mineral waste, by-products and end-of-life materials from other industry sectors. The secondary materials can be used as raw materials or introduced during the production process.

The following aspects should also be considered:

  • Product specifications according to customer expectations (e.g. durability, versatility, quality, traceability), clearly shown by involving relevant actors in the value chain;
  • Economic viability of the proposed processes together with potential new business concepts and simplified methodologies;
  • Regulatory aspects such as transport and use of secondary material in new products put on the market.

Proof of concept should be delivered at pilot or demo scale and advanced modelling tools should be developed to demonstrate convincingly scalability towards industrial applications.

Proposals submitted under this topic should include a business case and exploitation strategy, as outlined in the Introduction of this part of the Work Programme.


Activities should start at TRL 5 and achieve TRL 7 at the end of the project.;freeTextSearchKeyword=CE-SPIRE-09-2020;typeCodes=0,1;statusCodes=31094501,31094502,31094503;programCode=null;programDivisionCode=null;focusAreaCode=null;crossCuttingPriorityCode=null;callCode=H2020-LOW-CARBON-CIRCULAR-INDUSTRIES-2020;sortQuery=openingDate;orderBy=asc;onlyTenders=false;topicListKey=topicSearchTablePageState
