After keynote speeches from the EIT RawMaterials and the EASME of the European Commission, presentations were given about all main topics of the project, i.e. the development work in lab-scale and the underground tests, the modelling toolbox, the work on sustainability assessment of the BIOMOre process and finally the conditions for the economic viability of the process.
In the afternoon, the participants and project partners discussed about the potential future of the BIOMOre process. Several application scenarios were discussed. The main outcome of the discussion was that we should focus on the major challenges for the process, i.e. generation of sufficient permeability for the in-situ operation.
