Research &

Looking ahead to the future, we endeavour
to maintain an important Research and
Development activity in the mining, waste
and biorefinery sectors

Caspeo participates in R&D collaborative projects, bringing its experience in computer aided process engineering:

Process optimization based on mathematical modelling and computer simulation:

  • improvement of yield, product quality, energy and CO2 balance
  • reduction of utilities consumption and waste generation

Technical-economic feasibility studies for innovative processes:

  • process design
  • process scale-up
  • CAPEX and OPEX calculation

The type of collaboration differs from project to project, but typically Caspeo is involved in confidential bilateral industrial projects as well as in public funded collaborative projects (e.g. EU FP7 and H2020). Depending on the project Caspeo is either a full project partner or subcontracted by a project partner.

Here are some examples of R&D projects in which Caspeo has been involved :

  • 2016-2019 : Co-processing of coal mine and electronic waste: Novel resources for a sustainable future - CEReS European project (RFCS-2015)

  • 2014-2017 : "In situ" portable XRF measurements - In-situ measurement 2 project (CNRT Nickel co-financing)

  • 2013-2017 : Mathematical modelling and simulation of an algae refinery - BISIGODOS European project (FP7)

  • 2011-2012 : Simulation-based optimisation of vegetal extraction processes (CVG, France)

  • 2009-2012 : Characterization of plastics in Electric and Electronic Waste; Modelling of the sorting operations within a project of the International Competitiveness Cluster "Lyon & Rhône-Alps Chemicals/Environment" (France)

  • 2009-2011 : Participation to the modelling of a mineral residue carbonation process (National Research Agency project)

  • 2009 : Use of data reconciliation for the establishment of the CO2 balance of a sodium bicarbonate production process (National Research Agency project)

  • 2007-2009 : Simulation-based optimization of the reactive extrusion of biopolymers - Synthon project - IAR competitiveness cluster (France)

  • 2004-2008 : Development of the SCALE2000 software with BRGM: reaction-transport software dedicated to thermokinetics prediction and quantification of scales; possible applications to phosphoric acid plants

  • 2004-2006 : Modelling and simulation of the mineral liberation in cooperation with NRRI (Minnesota, USA)
