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:
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.
