Development of processes to add value and treat industrial solid residues
Industrial processes for transforming raw materials (mineral metallurgical, metallo-mechanical, chemical, etc.) and areas such as civil engineering and the petrochemical sector generate great quantities of residues, which, depending on the processes from which they originated, may be hazardous and require adequate treatment and disposal systems.
With the development of value adding technologies (such as recycling, reuse and new-life reuse) and treatment (to remove characteristics that render residues hazardous), the reuse of residues can become feasible and their danger minimized by transforming them into new products or raw materials for new processes. The alternatives employed depend on each type of residue and the specificities of the production process.
