[CEST2019_00929] Biomining - recovery of high-tech critical metals
by Butu A., Rodino S., Butu M.
Critical metals were defined as those metals essential for high-tech, medical and defense industry but with low availability due to uneven geographical distribution, thus resulting a high price volatility. The challenge of the future is to assure a stable supply of critical materials and implicitly of critical high-tech metals and this will be possible through multiple approaches such as intelligent mining, urban mining, extensive recycling and reutilization. The reports of European Commission regarding critical raw materials will be reviewed.
