The COSIA Tailings Clay Challenge is wickedly complex as it involves finding ways to remove suspended clay particles from tailings. This step is a key requirement to dewatering these leftover mining materials, permanently storing the clays, and closing a mine at the end of its life.
One way that COSIA supports start-up companies is by identifying opportunities for them in the innovation ecosystem – including helping them bridge funding gaps.
COSIA has been looking at how we can help start-ups find the resources they need to advance their technologies.
COSIA’s new pilot program is designed to help innovators fast track technology development and reach pilot – the critical testing of new technology in the field – sooner.
COSIA’s podcast series Innovative Minds is available on Spotify, Apple and Google.
With finite resources, we asked ourselves at COSIA how we could best support these entrepreneurs to develop their technology to the point where we could adequately assess its commercial potential.
Since COSIA’s inception, a key component of our strategy has been to identify clean technologies available from innovators, including start-up companies.
