Do you have an idea that could add value to sustainable mine water remediation?
We are looking to partner with experts to find, develop, and validate selective solutions that can target and efficiently remove targeted constituents from mine-influenced water (MIW) to enhance water recovery, reduce residual wastes, and the recovery of resources to generate new revenue streams and offset closure costs.
We are reaching out to the global research, technology, and innovation industry to catalyse the development of new R&D projects to achieve Rio Tinto’s goals for this business challenge.
Solutions do not necessarily need to meet full water treatment requirements (i.e. discharge quality), but must demonstrate a capability and the added value they would bring when integrated into a proven MIW treatment process.
The crowdsourcing campaign is a two-stage process.
This initial phase (Concept Paper) will close for submissions on 28th April 2022. An initial shortlist of selected submissions will be contacted during the week of 23rd May to submit a Full Proposal for an R&D project (Stage 2), with details of this communicated at the time.
Submissions lodged after the closing date and time or lodged using an alternative to Pioneer Portal may be disqualified from the evaluation process and will be ineligible for consideration.
Please submit via the form on the Pioneer Portal and ensure that you agree to the Terms and Conditions. Please also post a response on this page to make us aware that you applied - this will help us track your application.
