Together with the Institute of Minerals and Energy Economy Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the copmany began in 2018 cooperation on the international project MINTECO – “Integrated eco-technology for a selective recovery of base and precious metals in Cu and Pb mining by-products”. The project is co-financed by the National Center for Research and Development and aims to develop an integrated, innovative, efficient and environmentally friendly global technology for recovering base metals (Cu, Pb, Zn) and precious metals (Au, Ag) from mining waste containing copper and lead .

The consortium brings together eight partners from four countries (France, Romania, Poland and Turkey) complementing each other with experience. These include: University (Turkey), three research institutes
(Romania, Poland), a public institution (France) and three small and medium enterprises (France,
Romania, Poland).
