All partners of the REMAGHIC project (except Piaggio and Pininfarina, and the latter joined by webmeeting) gathered in Valladolid (Spain) to review the work done during the first six months of the project. During this period the main work has been focused on WP 1 and WP2, which are related with the recovery of REE and magnesium from industrial waste input. WP5 LCCA models development has already been kicked off during this time and Dissemination & Communication activities (WP6) and Management (WP7) will take place along all the project progress.

During the meeting a general revision of the status of the project was done. Each WP leader presented the work that had been developed, and any question or doubt was solved at the moment.

REMAGHIC meeting hold 24-25 February 2016 CIDAUT facilities.

As a complement to the project during this meeting, two workshops took place. The first one was planned to give the entire consortium a first approach of the work which is expected to be done by each partner in the WP5 (Life Cycle assessment of the process). This first workshop focused mainly on explaining why good quality information is really important for the success of the project. The second workshop was about the Risk Management of the project. This workshop had two parts, a theoretical one, and a practical session, in which all the partners worked actively to identify and classify all the risks related to WP1, WP3 and WP5.

During this meeting the consortium was able to visit CIDAUT facilities: on the first day meeting, the facilities related with the project (magnesium casting facilities, microstructure characterization laboratory and mechanical properties laboratory) were shown and on the second day a brief tour to show all the capabilities of the center was organized.

The REMAGHIC project was invited to the SPIRE Impact Workshop 2016

The European Commission has officially invited REMAGHIC to be present during the 2nd  SPIRE Impact Workshop, on 21-22 April 2016 in Brussels. REMAGHIC will be one of the 16 projects that will be presented at the Session3: Efficient Sustainability and Circular Economy – Domain1: Recovery from Waste).
