CHROMIC at Euroclay 2019

1 July 2019 Events

The CHROMIC’s results will be presented at EUROCLAY 2019 ( by VITO’s researcher Elena M. Seftel. EUROCLAY is one of the most important scientific meetings in the field of clays and clay minerals, an event taking place every four years, in which the latest cutting-edge results of this research area are presented. The forthcoming edition of the event will be held at Pierre & Marie Curie University (UPMC) in the center of Paris, France, from 1st to 5th July.

Two contributions will show the research conducted by VITO within CHROMIC. The first one is a poster titled “Sorption of metal oxyanions from complex solutions by layered double hydroxide (LDHs) type anionic clays” will be part of the session “Layered double hydroxides for Future Earth”, whereas the second, an oral presentation called “Clay-based structured composites for oxyanions uptake from aqueous waste effluents” (realized in collaboration with the Laboratory of Adsorption and Catalysis of the University of Antwerpen), will be presented during the session “Clay and clay minerals in ceramics: from industrial to new hierarchical/textural materials”.

This project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program under Grant Agreement n° 730471
