In 2017, the Iterams project consortium started the adventure towards more sustainable mining under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. The project marked a new direction to the mining industry in relation to mine water and tailings. One of the main challenges of this century is to conserve and protect freshwater. The team at ITERAMS has published THE H2020 ITERAMS INTEGRATED MINING TECHNOLOGIES FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIAL SUPPLY book this month.
IMA Engineering is happy to announce that the ITERAMS project reached its next stage after 2 years of hard work. Now in proof of concept phase, the teams are busy working on testing and publishing their research made in mines in Finland, Portugal and South-Africa.
The 1st sample collection for ITERAMS WP1 and WP2 was done in July 2017. After first sample series were tested in Leoben and Oulu Universities, and first results were received during winter and spring 2017-2018, a new campaign was planned and decided.
IMA was pleased to participate at the general meeting of the ITERAMS project held at Hotel Front Maritim, between and 30.11 amd 1.12.2017 in Barcelona, Spain.
We had very productive and interesting meetings. We also enjoyed meeting and talking to all attendees as usual. Thanks everybody!
