The MINRESCUE project provides innovative solutions for recycling of Coal Mining Waste Geomaterials (CMWGs) and their application in the construction industry.

The Problem

The problem of Coal Mining Waste Geomaterials (CMWGs) is particularly important as the volume of disposed waste is enormous.

The Solution

The core objective of the project is to develop and validate a strategy to upgrade CMWGs as constituents in sustainable construction materials and products.

Hence, with significant money saving and environmental footprint reduction, MINRESCUE will significantly contribute to the establishment of a circular economy in coal mining areas.
