Comminution is one of the most energy-consuming industrial processes. 2-5% of the total energy consumption in the world is used in comminution of materials. With GREENY the comminution process is analyzed experimentally and by using advanced simulation to find out the ruling factors which can be used for designing the mineral crushing and separation processes more energy-efficient, especially for materials difficult to process e.g. slag.

Main Theme

  • Increased resource efficiency in mineral and metallurgical processes

Additional Themes

  • Recycling and material chain optimization for End-of-Life products
