CMI Project 4.1.2 Automated and artificial intelligence (AI)-accelerated separation of critical materials

The goal for a net-zero carbon emission economy by 2050 requires the rapid maturation and deployment of next-generation energy technologies in less than three decades. The successful achievement of this goal is highly dependent on developing and applying innovative methods to dramatically improve the supply chain of critical materials by sustainable recovery and mining. The overarching goal of this project is to automate and accelerate the complete research, development and demonstration (RD&D) workflow at the lab scale by employing data-driven and artificial intelligence (AI) enabled methods to develop advanced extractants and sustainable separation processes.
