Bioleaching processes are originated in the mining industry. We are currently using them in a modified way to treat residues form waste incineration plants containing minerals and metals. The target can be the re-use of minerals, reduction of heavy metals
or the recovery of metals.

About Bioleaching

Added Value from Incineration Slag

Leaching of Wood Ash

Bioleaching is often used in copper and gold mining to recover metals from low-metalcontent-ore with the help of bacterial and chemical treatment.



Slag or ashes from Waste-to-Energy plants is our main topic if it comes to Bioleaching.






Ash from wood incineration contains a high level of heavy metals. They can be removed and reused as trace elements.
