CIME develops innovative, tailor-made and integrated solutions, always more respectful of the environment by relying on 4 clusters:
Main step in the estimation of mining reserves
Sampling is an essential step in estimating deposit reserves or conducting representative tests in an ore processing process.
Sampling consists in obtaining a reasonable number of representative samples of a deposit or a pile of several thousand or millions of tons of ore by means of direct sampling, reductions or successive divisions.
CIME engineers use Gy's theory to optimize the different steps of the process.
The teams carry out studies which integrate the development and the fine-tuning of processes for the implementation of pilots. These tests are carried out under real-life operating conditions to address the customer problem. The fields are variable, such
as elements from non-nuclear residues (urban mine...). In the nuclear fields, CIME authorizations allow handling of up to 34t U, 2t Th and 800g U235 enriched up to 5%.
The CIME analytical laboratory is approved by the French ; Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) for measurements of radioactivity in the environment.
The CIME site is certified for the use of natural and artificial radionuclides in the conduct of analyses.
CIME is the only French research establishment which has the regulatory authorizations issued by the Senior Defense and Security Officer within the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition to handle up to 34T of uranium (natural and depleted),
2T of Thorium and 800g of U235 enriched to 5% in the processes.
Implementing tailor-made pilots
Design and manufacture customized pilots
Within the ‘Industrial Pilot’ division, a multidisciplinary team designs, scales and manufactures modular pilot plants. This cluster includes a design office and workshops in mechanics, electricity, instrumentation, metrology, machining, boiler making, ensure coordination between specialized equipment manufacturers and engineering companies, responsible for the construction of the factories. Take part in start-up operations of industrial units in order to transmit the selected processes to the operators.
