NWE-REGENERATIS - Geophysical survey campaign at Teesworks site, UK

Posted on

Members of the project team have recently visited Teesworks to inspect the former Tata Steel landfill located there which is estimated to be more than 95% steel slag. (With operation ceasing in July 2002). In order to characterise the structure and type of metallurgical wastes, a team of geophysicists from BRGM and the University of Liège accompanied by members of MPI and Cranfield University conducted a geophysical survey on the Teesworks site. From 17th to 24th May. Read More

PILOT TESTS IN CTP - BELGIUM

Posted on

The NWE-REGENERATIS project (Interreg North-West Europe), coordinated by SPAQUE, aims at demonstrating that resources (metals, minerals and land) can be recovered from Past Metallurgical Sites and Deposits (PMSDs) by Urban Mining techniques. CTP's involvement in the project consists essentially of evaluating the metals recovery potential from three metallurgical sites, located in Belgium, France and UK , by applying mineral processing techniques.

Geophysical and lab investigations in progress on the former metallurgical site of Pompey in Lorraine (France)

Posted on

After the DUFERCO steelmaking site in Wallonia (Belgium) a few months earlier, it is now up to the Pompey pilot site (France), managed by the EPFGE (Etablissement Public Foncier de Grand Est), to welcome a team from the European INTERREG NWE-REGENERATIS project. In a circular economy mindset, the objective of this project is to determine the potential of past metallurgical sites by means of geophysical investigations to recover materials of interest present in their soil. Some samples have been taken for characterization and to carry out some lab tests (mineral processing and eco-catalyst). Read More
