  • The event will be held at Imperial College on September 24 and 25. During the venue, the partners will share the status of their research and work done, with only a few months left before the European project ends.

September 24 and 25, 2018 at the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine(London). These are the dates and venue for the sixth follow-up meeting of the European RESLAG project, where each of the 19 partners from 8 different countries will share the status of their research and work done with the rest of the participants, as well as the steps to be taken in the coming months, the last ones before the project ends in March 2019. A Technical Meeting as well as a Management Meeting among all the participating partners are planned to be held during the event.

The European steel industry generates more than 20 million tonnes of slag per year. A quarter is not recycled and ends up either stored or in landfills, which causes a significant environmental impact. RESLAG’s goal is to convert this slag into useful, value-generating material through four eco-innovative research lines.

In order to promote a better understanding of the problems and solutions, RESLAG has created different teams that bring together all the parties involved: Universities, top-level private companies, and research centres. All slag recycling technologies developed at RESLAG are being tested on an industrial pilot scale and supervised by top-level end users.The point of view of all realities is crucial to achieving results. All this will be discussed at the meeting taking place in London.

RESLAG, which is funded by the European Union through the Horizon 2020 Programme, is led by the Basque Centre for Energy Storage Research (CIC ENERGIGUNE).
