Steering Committee Meeting & ARP Site Visit

Nov 12, 2021

In November 2021, FlashPhos partners gathered in Leoben, Austria for a two-day Steering Committee Meeting. The meeting gave the project partners the chance to review the project progress face-to-face, in line with Corona regulations (2G) in Austria.

Visiting Project Partner ARP

After a detailed review of all project work packages and technical meetings on the first day, partners had the chance to visit partner ARP’s (Aufbereitung Recycling und Prüftechnik GmbH) premises the next day. ARP operates as an institute for research, development and industrial demonstration projects and is able to run simulations of processes in pilot plant scale in a real industrial environment, starting with mechanical, up to chemical and pyro-metallurgical processes as well as thermal treatment. On the premises of ARP, the FlashPhos pilot plan will be built and the industrial FlashPhos process with up to 250 kg/h sewage sludge throughput will be demonstrated.

Thank you, ARP, for hosting such an interesting site visit!

Raw materials are essential for our daily lives.

It is important to ensure the security and sustainability of their supply.

The European Critical Raw Materials Act will:

☑️ Identify strategic projects along the supply chain
☑️ Build strategic reserves for our Union


💡 White #phosphorus is a strategically important substance irreplaceable for key industries like food, pharmaceuticals & electronics.

@FlashPhos will produce #highquality white phosphorus & other #rawmaterials using #sewagesludge as input material 👉
