Published: 25 November 2016

LTU/Swebrec is a partner in the Horizon 2020- project SLIM (Sustainable Low Impact Mining solution for exploitation of small mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies).

The project is 4 years and involves 12 partners from 5 countries. The kick-off meeting was held in Madrid and UPM (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) was the host of the event.

The research group Mining and Rock Engineering/Swebrec at LTU will mainly carry out research within the fields:

  • Explosive characterization
  • Rock characterization pre and post-blast
  • Environmental impact and safety
  • Plant operation monitoring and system validation
