It is a long way from a successful and promising result under ideal laboratory conditions ("lab scale") to a smoothly running commercial process application. The next step after "lab scale" is usually a "bench scale" test, followed by a "pilot plant" test. The last step before a commercial operation scale is a "demo plant" operation. Pilot plant tests have in the Biomine project taken place at Tecnicas Reunidasยด facilities in Madrid. The original Biometech application contained a concept for a demo plant outside Boliden, operating typically 150-500 kg of ore or concentrate per hour. This could not be financed within the project application, which later became the BioMinE project.
