10 Years Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology and Inauguration Metallurgy Pilot Plant
The year 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the HIF. It was our pleasure to celebrate this anniversary together with you and in company of Saxony’s Minister President Michael Kretschmer on the 9th of September 2021.
The figure “10” does not only play an important role for the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), but also for HIF by marking a significant milestone. In addition to the center's 10-year membership in the Helmholtz Association, the HIF can now also look back on 10 very successful years of resource technology research here in Freiberg. Nevertheless, things will not stop here! With many plans for the upcoming years, we are already looking ahead!
The event on the 9th of September have seen the inauguration of our new metallurgy pilot plant. This, we trust, will be followed by the construction of "FlexiPlant", a unique research infrastructure to be built on our campus within the next few years. This infrastructure will provide further opportunities for partners from science and industry to conduct resource technology research at the highest level and in close cooperation with us. The development of a unique campus for resource technology and sustainability is thus progressing steadily.
