Novel technologies
in seawater desalination plants to extract minerals and metals from seawater brines

Sea4Value brings together 16 partners from Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Netherlands, Finland and Switzerland to develop and upscale technologies to sustainably mine raw materials from brines.

10 extracted minerals / metals

The main focus will be on separating, concentrating and crystallising Molybdenum, Magnesium, Scandium, Vanadium, Gallium, Boron, Indium, Lithium, Rubidium and Calcium.

10 technologies

Sea4Value will develop radical innovative technologies for pre-treatment, concentration, extraction, purification and crystallisation:

Great to see that the extraction technologies for #CriticalRawMaterials that #Sea4Value is developing are now categorized as critical for the European Union!

We will do our best.

.@ThierryBreton suggested yesterday at the IEA Critical Minerals and Clean Energy Summit that the "Critical Raw Materials Club" will start this year.

We are happy to help with our and our partner's expertise in Europe and worldwide.
