The research focus of SCARCE is directed towards the development of innovative and environment-friendly solutions for the treatment and recycling of challenging waste streams, such as e-waste, and exploring novel methods to recover and/or utilise these resources.
The areas are aligned with the Closing The Waste Loop (CTWL) Initiative, a R&D programme announced in 2017 by NEA, Singapore. These areas aim to boost R&D capabilities in developing solutions to extract value and resources from key wastes streams in Singapore.
SCARCE focuses mainly on the development of cost-efficient hydrometallurgy-based recycling approaches with lower environmental impacts in four key research thrusts listed.
