The European Union project (RESLAG) consortium meeting will be held by Renotech Oy and VTT on the 29th and 30th of March, 2017 in Turku. The meeting will bring together representatives from 19 partners from eight different countries, i.e. Spain, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Finland, and Morocco. The objective of the meeting is to monitor the progress in all work packages as well as to synchronize the future work over the whole consortium.
The RESLAG project is funded by the EU through the WASTE call framed within the Horizon 2020 Programme. The project's leader is the Energy Cooperative Research Centre (CIC ENERGIGUNE) located in Vitoria (Spain).
The main objective of RESLAG project is to turn currently landfilled steel slags into valuable products for innovative applications. The four routes considered in the project are: extraction of metals, development of pebbles for TES applications, development of TES material to be used for concentrated solar power plants, and production of innovative refractory materials.
Renotech Oy together with VTT is responsible for the formulation, production, and validation of refractory materials.
