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

Sea4Value brings together 15 partners from Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Netherlands, and Finland to develop and upscale technologies to sustainably mine raw materials from brines.

9 extracted minerals / metals

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