The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) in cooperation with the SCALE project, is organizing a workshop on secondary raw materials/urban mining data management in close connection with a scientific exchange platform for stake holders of the European scandium inventory.


Monday, 26th of November

European data management platforms – how do we use, maintain and finance them?

Tuesday, 27th of November

Recovery of scandium from primary and secondary resources, scandium purification and production of scandium metal and alloys

About the SCALE project

Scandium is an enabler in vital sectors like clean energy, transport, optics and advanced materials. Despite having a proven set of impressive applications, its volatile price and unreliable supply chain limit their deployment. SCALE develops innovative technologies that can extract economically and sustainably Sc from dilute mediums (<100 mg/L) and upgrade them to pure oxides, metals and alloys at lower energy or material cost. This will be achieved through the development of a number of innovative extraction, separation, refining and alloying technologies that will be validated in an appropriate laboratory and industrial environment to prove their technical and economic feasibility. SCALE builds on the success of previous and on-going European research projects like ENEXAL, EURARE, REECover, REE4EU and REMAGHIC.
