The CHROMIC project has been presented at two events that recently took place in Slovakia.

The first one was held in Horná-Lehota from 4th to 6th September, organized by Železiarne  Podbrezová Research and Development Center, an institution in the metallurgy field, specialized in steel. It was a special national conference, called for the 10th anniversary of the R&D Center, where industrial and academic partners were invited to present their latest research results. CHROMIC was there through the Institute of Recycling Technologies (IRT) of the Faculty of Materials, Metallurgy and Recycling at the Technical University of Kosice (TUKE), which is a partner of the project. IRT held one whole section of the conference, part of which was dedicated to the presentation of the CHROMIC project’s goals, partners’ involvement and first experimental results.

The second event was the 24th edition of the “TOP” international conference on techniques of environmental protection, held at Hotel Panorama in High Tatras, Štrbske Pleso, from 19th to 21st September. Organized by the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU), the conference was divided in five different panels and IRT was the organizer of an industrial waste treatment section, within the panel dealing with the topic of waste recycling. The CHROMIC project was introduced in two different presentations, the first of which focusing on explaining its aims and workplan, whereas the second one dedicated to showing the first experimental results on radiofrequency and ozone leaching obtained by IRT.
