In an international collaboration between the Division of Geosciences and Environmental Engineering at Luleå University of Technology and the Polytechnique Montreal / Reaserch Institute for Mines and Environments (RIME) studies are carried out on innovative coatings for mining waste.

"Applications with green liquor dregs for mining waste have been studied at LTU in several projects, and the results show that mixtures containing green liquor dregs can work well as a sealant. What has not been studied before is the acid  oxygen diffusion through these mixtures," says Christian Maurice, Associate Professor in Applied Geochemistry at Luleå University of Technology.

The acid diffusion tests are carried out at Polytechnique Montreal, Canada, for three months in the spring of 2018 before work continues at home in Luleå.

Laboratory tests to determine how much oxygen is transported through a dense compacted layer of green liquor dregs and moraine is the focus of a master's degree carried out by LTU student Anna Virolainen in the Master Programme in Exploration and Environmental Geosciences, under the supervision of Christian Maurice (LTU) and Thomas Pabst (Polytechnic Montreal / RIME).

The acid  oxygen diffusion tests are carried out at Polytechnique Montreal, Canada, for three months in the spring of 2018 before work continues at home in Luleå.
