The aim of Biometallum is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of a biotechnological process for the valorisation of electronic waste, as a more sustainable and profitable alternative for the recovery of valuable metals. This proposal, based on circular economy and the concept of urban mining, promote local business from a technology that reduce dependence on limiting natural resources and manage a type of waste (electronic) that is increasing at a higher rate in our society, which has an associated negative impact on environment and human health.
