For the second consecutive year, Sidenor will participate as a speaker at the Mineral Recycling Forum which will this time take place in Krakow on March 5-6, 2019. It is already the fourth edition of the event, organised by IMFORMED, which continues to develop as a reference encounter for actors involved in recycling and waste recovery as well as in secondary raw materials (“Secondary Raw Materials – SRM”).
A total of 13 lectures will be delivered on circular economy strategies and good practices in waste recovery in the steel industry (with a focus on refractories) and other sectors. In this context, Sidenor’s presentation, entitled “From best practices to excellence in refractory waste management”, will consist in presenting the range and progress of two European projects recently approved for funding by the European Commission: the 5RefrAct project within the framework of the LIFE project, and the E-CO-LadleBrick project under the RFCS (Research Fund for Coal and Steel). In both cases, Sidenor coordinates the respective consortia.
