Following the successful commissioning of the new Hydro Pilot unit, the first tests in Bauxite Residue acid leaching took place at Mytilineos. The pilot over the next months will generate at least 5 m3 of Sc containing solution which will be refined into Sc concentrate at the II-VI SIR pilot plant (which is house in the same facility at Mytilineos)
The 7th SCALE progress meeting was held on 1st of April 2020, online due to the COVID19 outbreak. In total 39 participants joined the online teleconference sessions to review and discuss the progress of the project. Hopefully the next REMOVAL meeting will be once again physical.
