We are happy to announce CORALIS has initiated a set of synergy activities with the Horizon 2020 project ReActiv, to foster mutual knowledge exchange on common project challenges.

The ReActiv project will create a novel sustainable symbiotic value chain, linking the by-product of the alumina production industry and the cement production industry.  Bauxite residue (BR) is the main by-product of the alumina sector produced at rates of  76.8 million tons per year in EU,  meanwhile the recycling rate is current less than 200 thousand tons per year respectively. In ReActiv modification will be made to both the alumina production and the cement production side of the chain, in order to link them through the new ReActiv technologies. The latter will modify the properties of the industrial residue, transforming it  into an reactive material (with pozzolanic or hydraulic activity) suitable for new, low CO2 footprint, cement products. In this manner ReActiv proposes a win-win scenario for both industrial sectors (reducing wastes and CO2 emissions respectively).

The exploitation of synergies with H2020 projects will mostly involve exchange of learning material and planning and organizing webinars and thematic workshops along with a set of other activities.

Stay tuned to find out more about the upcoming synergies between CORALIS and ReActiv.
