BRACE

Battery Recycling App for the Circular Economy (BRACE)

BRACE was developed as a reliable AI platform aimed at enhancing the overall efficiency, sustainability, and safety of the battery recycling industry.

It will leverage our expertise in solvent extraction and grinding, and our research into plant design variations through Digital Twins and Digital Process Models, both currently used and anticipated in the marketplace.

Additionally, it will address regulatory and permitting requirements to manage the carbon footprint while utilizing decision intelligence to optimize variable feedstock and ensure product quality assurance.

 

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

ESG Product Principles and Coverage

ESG factors are built into our decision intelligence platform, brains.app, and all of our Mining Process Optimization applications.

Corporate and Operations teams are equipped with real-time information detailing the material-specific environmental footprint as it progresses through various mining processes.

Users could access data on the energy, water, and carbon indices associated with their desire targets (metal recovery & throughput), enabling them to make more sustainable decisions.

Material Tracking & Provenance

Real-time monitoring and transparent circular economy compliance

Our Material Handling Model tracks material flow and metallurgical and physical properties from the pit through the processing plant.

It offers real-time information and predictions regarding when the material will reach a specific point and its impact on the process.

Furthermore, real-time monitoring and reconciliation guarantee transparent compliance with circular economy principles, encompassing metal provenance, while continuous monitoring of energy, water, and CO2 emissions persists.

Optimization Case Studies

Explore our short case studies related to the BRACE project, designed to provide you with a quick overview and insight into the possibilities achievable through IntelliSense.io Scientific AI Process Optimization for the Metals and Materials Value Chain.

Solvent Extraction Optimization

Real-time organic flow monitoring with the Loaded Organic Flow Virtual Sensor allows operators to control SX circuits more efficiently with real-time data availability, helping increase copper mass transfer by 3% and reduce acid utilization.

Grinding Optimization

The recommendation of optimal mill control variables stabilizes the feed and maximizes grinding, resulting in a 1% increase in throughput while maintaining circuit productivity and reducing the frequency of mill shutdowns.
