According to Outotecís Jury

The study Novel research method was successfully applied to study phenomena that have a great impact on flotation technology. The research portrayed a potential basis to improve recovery and efficiency in flotation in general as it is not limited to a single application.

The possibility for commercial applications based on the research is likely, based on the dimensioning and optimization of present flotation processes, but it may also contribute to long term development of flotation equipment.

As Outotecís core value lies in the sustainable use Earthís natural resources, with a focus on the decrease of energy consumption of flotation processes, this was seen as an important tribute.
