RECOVER Project, supported by EIT RawMaterials, transforms bauxite residue and metallurgical residues into porous, fire resistant and other inorganic polymers products exhibiting unique properties while contributing to circular economy.
Mobile Production Modular Unit
Take the opportunity to experience a first-of-a-kind working mobile production unit that upcycles bauxite residue and metallurgical residues into building material.
Watch – Touch – Feel The Future
Learn how to produce inorganic polymers and lower CO2 construction materials through our video workshops.
Experience Our Materials
Be part of an impressive demonstration of objects and construction materials made from bauxite residue and metallurgical residues.
