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.

The year is 2022 A.D. Summer time is entirely occupied by vaccation. Well, not entirely!

A small group of #Sea4value scientists was meeting online and holds out against project obstacles. And life is not easy ...

Enjoy the summer! 🌊🔅

Freshwater resources are scarce and increasingly under pressure. 💧

We need to use this resource more efficiently.

Today, we've published guidelines for EU countries on safely reusing treated urban waste water for agricultural irrigation.
