Industrial testing in a rotary kiln, where serpentinated waste of selected quality will be heat treated for its transformation into dunite. The produced product will be used for the production of olivine refractory bricks and masses, vased on laboratory compositions.
Quality Control/Quality Analysis on the created, refractory products, according to the their future use, such as controls on microstructure and mineral composition, density and porosity, as well as thermomechanical properties
The first step involves the establishment of the Coordination and Scientific team and the corroboration of the smooth and efficient progress of the project through the use of optimal processes between the partners, according to the proposed project plan.
Among the results there will be found a meticulous bibliographic review of the project and the project's website.
Experiments of heat treatment and conversion of sterile rock into dunite.
Implentation of granulometric, petrographic and mineral analysis of the initial and final samples (SEM, XRD etc) and chemical & geochemical analysis (XRF, ICP-MS etc). Statistical analysis and results processing leading to modeling the experimental process
The research organization that will take part in this project is the Laboratory of Chemistry and Environmental Technology of the Department of Chemistry of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Its members...
