Building materials

Dear Readers,

To meet the demand for fine and ultrafine-grained end products, e. g. in the building materials industry, the optimization of process technologies makes an important contribution. The article “The design of FAM special hammer mills for comminution and drying of bulk solids” from p. 44 provides information on the possibilities and advantages of process integration.


Dr. Harder informs in his article “Secondary use of mineral raw materials” from p. 32 about use of industrial, mineral by-products as secondary raw material on the example of iron ore slags, fly ash and boiler sand as well as REA gypsum.


In addition, the current issue of AT MINERAL PROCESSING offers further exciting topics around the securing, extraction, processing and use of mineral substances.
