:: FLSmidth Wins Prestigious R&D Award for Rapid Oxidative Leach Technology
FLSmidth wins the global Top 100 R&D award at the R&D 100s for the Rapid Oxidative Leach process (ROL), allowing copper producers with low to mid-grade copper ore to bypass smelting.
For the past 50 years the R&D 100s has been the Who's Who for cutting edge R&D, celebrating the brightest innovations of the year with several thousand contestants from all types of industries. FLSmidth won the global Top 100 for our Rapid Oxidative Leach process. Accompanying us on the winning podium were NASA, Johnson & Johnson, MIT, and several national laboratories like Sandia and Berkeley.
"We are extremely proud to be among the global Top 100 of cutting edge R&D across industries and institutions worldwide. Mining is the oldest existing industry, but we are nevertheless constantly able to rethink processes to get more out of the natural resources. ROL is a potential industry game-changer," says the proud Vice President of R&D in Minerals, Gary Roy, receiving the award in Washington DC.
