URGENT H2020 SC5-09-2018-2019: Advances toward the development of high capacity and selectivity adsorbents for the recovery of transition metals from seawater and brines sought from a Greek R-Y-D institution
Summary:
A Greek R-Y-D Institution is currently working on preparing a proposal under the H2020 topic SC5-09-2018-2019 that deals with the development of cost-effective porous adsorbents able to recover from seawater and desalination brines, several valuable transition metals at high binding capacity and selectivity. The institution is looking for industrial and/or academic partners with expertise on one or more of the project components and for industrial partner with access to desalination unit.
Description:
The Greek Institution which is one of the leading Institutions of Greece conducts fundamental and technological research that is focused on cutting-edge areas of science, specific needs of industry and the environment. The Institution has a long-standing experience in R-Y-D projects.

The project aims towards the development of a new generation of porous adsorbents able to bind specific transition metals (TMs - Cu, Co, Pt, Pd, Ag, Au, Mo, Ni, V) from seawater or brines and devise cost-effective and sustainable procedures for TM desorption / sorbent regeneration (TM mining from seawater).

To this goal, three categories of adsorbents will be developed, and tested to optimize their capacity to adsorb and desorb valuable transition metals, and select the most suitable ones for engineering configuration and scale-up: (i) low-cost and carbon-based bio-sorbents synthesized by modifying and functionalizing the biomass of wastes; (ii) low-cost inorganic materials prepared by modifying and functionalizing natural inorganic materials (e.g. perlite, bentonite, zeolites, ash, sand, clay); (iii) low-cost chelating ligands appropriately cross-linked to polymeric membranes.

Porous materials with high surface area and controlled pore structure properties will be prepared by processing and modifying raw materials of natural or industrial origin (e.g. waste biomass, natural materials, polymers). Depending on their sorption properties, the various categories of porous materials will be functionalized toward enhancing the sorption capacity and selectivity for each transition metal. Batch sorption tests will be conducted with four types of water: (i) synthetic seawater; (ii) synthetic brine; (iii) real seawater; (iv) real brine of desalination. For the most efficient adsorbents, cost-effective and sustainable (in terms of materials and energy consumption) methods of metal desorption and sorbent regeneration will be investigated. Numercial modeling will be combined with results of batch tests to design and construct two prototypes: one for isolating TM from seawater and one for separating TM from brines produced in desalination units. Material flow analysis, cost-beneft analysis, and environmental assessment will allow us to assess the viability and sustainability of a adsorption/desoprtion technology for the production of TMs from seawater either as a standalone or as a post-treatment (brine) process.
