FAME - a HORIZON 2020 R&I project

FAME - a HORIZON 2020 R&I project - united expertise of researchers from seven countries to optimize existing and to develop new technologies for processing complex Sn, W, Li - Greisen, Skarn and Pegmatite ores. FAME substantially contributed to valorise the Saxon Sn, In, Zn Tellerhäuser deposit. This Regional closure conference introduces into the research work including that of a merger with BMBF funded AFK project setting up a pilot plant for the production of a marketable tin concentrate for local smelters.

GERRI becomes association

With the founding of an association, the German Resource Research Institute is taking the next step to further promote the bundling of raw material expertise from science and industry for the German economy.

The promotion of science and research in the field of raw materials is one of the most important goals of the association. "We represent the interests of German resource research in Germany and abroad and manage strategic research cooperation. By networking actors and pooling expertise, we are a decisive point of contact for raw materials, which become an increasingly important topic for industry and society alike," explains Prof. Dr. Dr. Markus Reuter, Director of the Helmholtz Institute for Resource Technology (HIF) at the HZDR and First Chairman of the association. Prof. Daniel Goldmann, head of the Institute for Processing, Landfill Technology and Geomechanics at Clausthal University of Technology, was elected second chairman.

New associated partners! BAM and TH Nürnberg join GERRI

In early 2018 the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) and the Nuremberg Institute of Technology (or Nuremberg Tech) joined GERRI as associated partners. BAM is a scientific and technical institute with responsibility to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). As an interface between economy, science and politics, BAM will be an important partner in the GERRI network. The federal authority has state-of-the-art testing facilities and strengthens our service divisions with its expertise in materials testing and development. 

Furthermore, Nuremberg Tech joins the network, represented by the Institute of Mechanical Process Engineering under the direction of Prof. U. Teipel. With a research focus on particle technologies and raw material innovations and efficiency, they are expanding our team very well. GERRI is looking forward to the upcoming cooperation with both institutions.
