The Scale (Scandium Aluminium Europe) project became 1 year old on the 30th November 2017. The consortium with almost 40 participants has held its 1 year Project Meeting in Rotterdam.
Dr. Viktória Feigl , Emese Vaszita and Éva Ujaczki attended the meeting on behalf of BME. We visited Tronox’s Rotterdam Botlek titanium dioxide (TiO2) producing facility, since one of the objectives of the project is extraction of scandium from the filter cake, the final residue of TiO2 production.
BME’s research group is involved in the project with the following main tasks: assessment of the environmental effects of the planned processes, chemicals, wastes and products, environmental risk management, Life Cycle Analysis and development of an environmental database for scandium bearing wastes (included into the MOKKKA-ENFO database ).
BME and FHNW with the collaboration of the consortium partners have completed the 1st public Deliverable on the environmental, health and safety controls that should be taken into account in SCALE technology development.
The document has the following title “Markus Lenz, Dirk Hengevoss, Éva Ujaczki, Emese Vaszita, Viktória Feigl: Environmental, health and safety characterization of processes for application case studies”.
