Miljoner till innovation
Fyra projekt från det strategiska innovationsprogrammet Swedish Mining Innovations utlysning ”Säkra hållbar metall och mineralförsörjning” koordineras av Swerim. Projekten finansieras av Vinnova, Energimyndigheten och Formas.
- Assessment of the melting performance of a new "green" lime product
- Climate-neutral molybdenum processes
- Hydrogen-metallised slag – processing and use – Haggis
- Mineral recovery from residual material from secondary metallurgy
Assessment of the melting performance of a new "green" lime
The aim of the prestudy is to present a joint development and demonstration trial to test and evaluate the green lime as a slagformer in steelmaking.
The participating companies are SaltX Technology and SMA Mineral. Swerim's Tova Jarnerud Örell, is the project manager.

Climate-neutral molybdenum process
Fluidised bed project for hydrogen reduction of molybdenum oxide. Lars-Olov Nordberg, Swerim is the project manager.

Hydrogen-metallised slag – processing and use – HAGGIS
The aim of the project is to metallise slag from which metals cannot otherwise be recovered, so as to recover valuable alloying elements.
Participants include Uddeholms, Vargön Alloys and Chalmers University of Technology. Pelle Mellin, Swerim is the project manager.

Mineral recovery from residual material from secondary metallurgy – REM
The prestudy will investigate the possibility of increasing the degree of on-site reuse of ladle furnace slag while the same time minimising the amount of virgin lime and dolomite that is used in the EAF process.
The participating companies are Höganäs Sweden, Celsa Armeringsstål and Carbomax. Sara Rosendahl, Swerim is the project manager.
