Launch of EU project RESLAG webpage
The RESLAG project website has been launched. RESLAG is a European Horizon 2020 project that develops solutions for the valorisation of steel slag through 4 eco-innovative industrial alternative applications that will be proved in 4 large scale demonstration pilots. The main objective of the RESLAG project, which involves 19 industrial and academic partners from 7 European countries, is to valorise the steel slag that is currently not being recycled (being partially landfilled and partially stored in steel factories) and to reuse it as a raw material for 4 innovative applications that contribute to a circular economy in the steel sector with an additional cross-sectorial approach. These applications will be demonstrated at pilot level and led by end-user industries. Altogether the project will open a range of possibilities to benefit from slag, not only for the steel sector but also for other industries. The participation of our Institute, led by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, involves the characterization of the starting materials and of the new RESLAG components developed from steel slag.
