November 2012. Tests and analyses prove the MDS technology will be a powerful separation technology for mineral processing.
In cooperation with market players UMD and Delft University of Technology have been performed R&D in this field. Latest months some brake throughts have been realized resulting in new MDS technology and patents. The technology appeared very powerfull and the economics looks good. UMD planned to develop it further and to market this technology in 2013. See section 'Mineral Processing' of this website.
