2010: INTERDISCIPLINAR SEMINAR : Polymer-based composites using mining wastes: Technical-artistically applications

poster seminário composites

University of Beira Interior23 of November 2010. Faculty of Engineering. Conference Room 8.01In Europe, about half the wastes produced by industry are from mining, which accumulate in heaps in some locations/regions, and its potential for re-utilization in conditioned by various factors, although it is an abundant reusable and low cost raw material. In Portugal, the mine waste accounts for approximately 20% of the total industrial waste accumulated. In the Central Region of Portugal, is located one of the most important of tungsten mines in the world, Panasqueira mines, which were recently the subject of an innovative research project aiming at reuse of its tailings as building materials for new technical and artistic applications.

In this context, the University of Beira Interior promotes an Interdisciplinary Seminar in collaboration with companies, technicians and researchers about the potential development of new composites, produced using wastes from mines and quarries, and its possible applications, in perspective of sustainable construction, waste reuse, innovation and economic viability in sculptural and architectural applications having great aesthetic value.

The Seminar will be held in Portuguese and Spanish language.
