Feasibility of valorization of slag obtained from bauxite residues

Evaluation of production of alternative slag from bauxite residues; optimum composition and production process; performance in cementitious mixes and potential use in construction products

Laboratory optimization of BR EAF smelting

This report describes the results of lab scale smelting of pig iron and FeSi, including innovations achieved in material pre-treatment (at least 3 publications or conference presentations are expected from this work) Intermediate report by M18

Laboratory tests on alkali recovery and red mud de-alkalization for different BR

RemovAL Project Identity, including website and logo

Launching of site and maintenance. First site version and logo delivered by M3

Data Management Plan

Data Management Plan (DMP) The first version of the DMP will be provided at M4 of the project. Since DMPs are expected to mature during the project, a more developed version of the plan will be included as additional deliverable at M30. This new version will include improvements based on lessons learned during the first half of the project.

Publications

Attendance to 17th International Conference on Chemistry and the EnvironmentThe event promotes cooperation on chemistry and environment issues between the European chemical societies and their members. It addresses scientists in academia, industry, and in governmental institutions and intends to provide an information and communication platform for environmental scientists.
