Yariv CohenHead of Research and Development at EasyMining
Yariv Cohen’s work involves the recovery of resources from waste with chemical processes, especially phosphorus from ash, focusing on efficient techniques where several components of the material can be utilized, and heavy metals are removed from the cycle. As co-founder and head of development at EasyMining, he has played a key role in developing seven patents. Two of those processes are in the design stage, Ash2Phos (phosphorus and metals from sludge ash) and Ash2Salt (various salts recovered from fly ash from waste incineration). He was part of a large collaborative project with the mining industry and a project in the EU LIFE program (recycling of nitrogen from wastewater).
He develops processes with awareness of both chemistry and the environment, the market, legislation and the economy, and does so with impressive knowledge, stubbornness and humility.
