Used Sand

New methods for the deposition of used sand.

This project aims to search and suggest alternative ways for used sand disposal that results from the non-permanent moulding process in foundry.

The methods suggested shall lead to minimization of the environmental impact, preferably by reusing the used sand in other processes or products.

This project is led by Clariant, in cooperation with the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, Sakthi Portugal and CITNM.
