OUTSOURCED BUSINESS AND STORIES
 

Circular economy: from mining wastes to construction products
 
Mining company Vale will transform 30,000 t of tailings, that would otherwise require storage, into 3.8m pre-moulded products with a variety of construction applications. This will happen at the plant situated inside the Vargem Grande complex in Itabirito, Brazil. The construction products will also include structural concrete blocks, sealing blocks and concrete plates. More info here!
