GeMMe at University Liège, Belgium is now a labs@location partner of ZEISS. GeMMe laboratories are dedicated to research as well as providing analytical services for industrial partners in the following specialties: Building Materials, Mineral Processing, Recycling & Hydrometallurgy and Sensor Based Sorting and Characterization. They are well known experts in their field with a great reputation.

One of the goals of labs@location is networking between leading research and industry facilities. The program has built up a strong reputation for implementing a certain technology, application or workflow. The correlative setup at the University of Liege is unique in its capability to bring together multiple analytical techniques in a single laboratory.

The group, led by Prof. Pirard, has been conducting research using advanced characterization techniques for over 20 years and is a member of a number of pan European projects such as KIK EIT Raw Materials. ZEISS has provided a scholarship at the University of Liege in which the GeMMe group is investigating improvements to the efficiency of the circular economy through a quantitative understanding of e-waste utilizing correlative automated mineralogy. ZEISS also contributes via teaching of the latest development in automated mineralogy on the Emerald Master’s program at the University of Liege.

GeMMe of University Liège, Belgium now is a labs@location Partner of ZEISS. Focusing on the circular economy, construction materials, process mineralogy, geometallurgy as well as extractive metallurgy & recycling, Professor Pirard and his team use a correlative setup from ZEISS incorporating a ZEISS Sigma 300 FE-SEM with Mineralogic Mining software, SEM mounted µXRF system and ZEISS Axio Imager research grade polarization light microscope. This analytical powerhouse is the only such setup in Europe to date.
