ResiduFlex unites partners with strong expertise and infrastructure and expertise in metallurgical residue valorization and mineral matrix conversion (the major volumetric fraction), to construction marketable materials.

It offers a one-stop comprehensive service in residue valorization offering a broad variety related technologies, expertise in relevant fields and a broad range of solutions (e.g. binder technologies, substitution of cement with by-products, carbonated products, inorganic (alkali activated) polymers, upgraded soil).

The ResiduFlex Network has the overall aim to increase the number of residues that can be treated by proving the feasibility on the lab scale as well as to detecting opportunities for upscaling, and to enhance the recovered/generated value.


The solution

The ResiduFlex Network is part of a more holistic ZeroWaste umbrella network targeting the extraction of valuables from low grade, complex wastes and ores, while up-cycling the residues to added value products.

ResiduFlex aims to reach these objectives by building a network of expertise and infrastructure in residue treatment and valorization, primarily for lab scale equipment providing proof of concept, but also including pilot scale installations, complemented with relevant expertise (e.g. in leaching or binder preparation).

For this reason, a system to simplify cooperation within the network, and provide services to outside customers has been developed (Service Platform).

To strengthen and expand the network, the detection of common project opportunities is pursued. The target customers of the ResiduFlex network are large industries, SMEs and organizations active in metallurgy, mining and construction as residue producer, processor or both.
