Challenge the practice is addressing: This practice addresses mining tailings and metallurgical heaps in RIS regions and accross Europe. The extraction in these regions presents a valuable resource for the secondary raw material market in Europe but also presents a substantial risk to the environment.
Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: This project aims to follow the zero-waste paradigm which means that raw materials are extracted and that the residues will be recycled for the construction sector. This will reduce the environmental impact and bring together industry, research, government, general public and environment sectors to increase competitiveness and innovation potential of regional knowledge triangle.
Expected impact/goal of the practice: The expected impact of this practice will be a regional innovative scheme which is based on validated and fact-based data.
