Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF)
Research at the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology 
(HIF) is dedicated to the development of innovative technologies and 
digital approaches that contribute to a sustainable circular economy of 
minerals and metals. Hyperspectral exploration, raw material 
characterisation, flotation technologies, biotechnology, process 
metallurgy and transdisciplinary approaches such as geometallurgy are 
the core competences of the institute. Particular emphasis is on the 
resource- and energy-efficient utilization of complex raw materials from 
primary and secondary sources.

As a publically funded national research institute the HIF is located in 
Freiberg (Germany). It is part of the Helmholtz-Zentrum 
Dresden-Rossendorf and operates in close collaboration with the TU 
Bergakademie Freiberg.

The HIF has formed a strategic partnership with the DSI-NRF Centre of 
Excellence with the common goal to address critical challenges facing 
the global raw materials industry through joint research projects, short 
learning programmes and student training. Both institutions share booth 
No T31 at Mining Indaba.
