Workshops

Carbonation technology for residue valorisation

This workshop is dedicated to the technology of carbonation to combine its ability to capture and store CO2 with the opportunity to recycle industrial by-products and residues. In this workshop, the general concept of the carbonation process and its application to valorize industrial residues will be discussed, as well as the path to transform this knowledge to real market products. The participants will develop a basic understanding of the carbonation process for industrial residue valorization and learn from the experts in the field about the current and future possibilities of this technology. At the end of the workshop, a discussion forum is organized to enable the participants to interact with the lecturers and the other participants to discuss in more depth specific topics of interest.

Workshop on inorganic polymer technology for residue valorisation

This workshop is dedicated to the technology of inorganic polymers, which are materials resulting from mixing alumino/iron-silicate precursors with an alkaline solution. In this workshop, the general concept of the inorganic polymer synthesis and its application to valorize industrial residues will be discussed, as well as the path to transform this knowledge to real market products. The participants will develop a basic understanding of the inorganic polymer process for industrial residue valorization and learn from the experts in the field about the current and future possibilities of this technology. At the end of the workshop, a discussion forum is organized to enable the participants to interact with the lecturers and the other participants to discuss in more depth specific topics of interest.
