The extraordinary properties of refractory metals, the unlikeliness of their future substitution and their use in booming
industries will sustain a high EU demand for tungsten (W), niobium (Nb) and tantalum (Ta).
Fractions of these indispensable metals are dissipated as by-products in mining waste streams as well as process scrap.
To stimulate their recovery from such complex, low-grade resources, ARANTULA will develop a suite of cost-effective, scalable and eco-friendly – bio-, hydro-, iono-, solvo-, pyroand electro-metallurgical – processes with high selectivity and recovery rates
