Applicability of Technosols in the closure of the Rio Tinto Project, Atalaya Mining – España

The project consisted of the following activities and objectives:

  • Diagnosis of existing materials, determining the needs for recovery and possible use of materials for closure.
  • Sectorisation of the components to be closed according to the type of Tecnosoles required and associated
    treatment systems.
  • Design of two pilot trials for the use of Technosols as a cover and as water treatment
  • To search and characterise the different internal and external wastes useful for the elaboration of the
    Tecnosols needed in the pilot trials.
  • To join and supervise the elaboration and implementation of the pilot trials.
  • To monitor and evaluate the efficiency of the pilots.
