The current situation on the fuel market, mainly related to the war in Ukraine, may cause interruptions in the supply of fuels and other raw materials, including building materials. Development of a comprehensive technology for the management of mine waste dumps is planned within the project. The main idea of the project is to use the separated mineral fractions and fly ash to produce geopolymer composites. It is planned to use CO2 as a process carrier in the production of composites. Another important aspect of the project is to determine a possibility of obtaining Hydrogen from the gasification of energy fractions. High-quality raw materials for the production of geopolymers and hydrogen will be ensured by the use of an innovative mobile separator for processing of mine waste. The project will enable the creation of environmentally friendly and economically justified installations using material from a post-mining waste landfill. Achieving the final goal will be possible thanks to the implementation of the partial goals set in the project, including the development of technologies dedicated to the production of geopolymers and hydrogen.
