The National Institute of Chemistry (Slovenia) employs over 300 researchers in 9 departments and two infrastructure centers. The Department of Catalysis and Chemical Reaction Engineering is primarily involved in chemical (process) engineering, reactor and unit operation design and construction, as well as multi-scale process modelling. Research topics include carbon dioxide and natural gas conversion, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, biomass valorisation to bio-based compounds, and (bio)pharmaceutical processes.

Role in the project: NIC will lead the Work package on Reclamation, specifically having the role of characterisation, extraction and valorisation of minerals, while it will also contribute to the decarbonisation, electrification and hydrogen in possible mining utilities, which will be duly explored within DINAMINE.
