ITHACA

Innovative and sustainable TecHnologies for reducing critical raw mAterials dependence for Cleaner transportation Applications.

The aim of ITHACA is to bring together significant research expertise from all over Europe in the area of materials manufacturing and recycling in order to create a new research community able to identify and address the challenges in sustainable processes proving the substitution of CRMs (such as Y, Co and PGMs) in materials for transportation applications (i.e. catalysts and engine components for aerospace and automotive industries).

ITHACA is one of the winner of the COST Innovators Grant (CIG), resulting from the COST ACTION CRM-EXTREME: Solutions For Critical Raw Materials Under Extreme Conditions (GA CA15102).

The project will capture and understand the current manufacturing scene and pump-prime activities to move the sector forward. LOMARTOV is taking part in the industrial innovation activities (WG3).
