The 3rd International Bauxite Residue Valorisation and Best Practices, organised by KU Leuven, co-organised by RemovAL Project and facilitated by Green2Sustain, covered the whole chain of bauxite residue, from production to applications. The event promoted the use of bauxite residue as a resource and an opportunity. The goal of this conference was to search for realistic and scientific solutions for these residues.
RemovAL’s consortium partners participated in nine sessions. Find below their titles and links to each video.
