“First of a kind commercial Compact system for the efficient Recovery Of CObalt Designed with novel Integrated LEading technologies”

(co-financed by European Commission Horizon 2020 programme)

Crocodile is a project co-financed by the European Commission (GA n.776473) within the frame of the Horizon 2020 programme (Call: H2020-SC5-2016-2017). This project aimed to recovery Cobalt from a series of WEEE wastes. In particular, the project is currently concluded (start date: June 2018 – end date November 2022) and it aimed to demonstrate on a large scale the innovative metallurgical process integrated, which uses different specific technologies to maximize the recovery of Cobalt.

Eco Recycling, as a project partner, was responsible for the following activities:

  • Study of the pre-existing mobile plant realized within the European HydroWEEE DEMO project, in order to identify the changes necessary for the realization of the proposed innovative process (revamping of two mobile plants);
  • Demonstration of the proposed process by integrating a new L-L extraction and electrodeposition sections to the previously developed plant (HydroWEEE DEMO);
  • Support for the realization of the business plan.
