Ana Andres and Maria Coronado from GER Research Group have published two papers with International collaboration, in Journals with Impact Factor Q1 in Environmental Sciences Category (positions 13 and 24 of 223); one of them in collaboration with Prof. Chris Cheeseman, from Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College London, and other one in collaboration with Prof. Ana Maria Segadães, Department of Materials and Ceramics Engineering (CICECO), University of Aveiro.These works use a different aproach to investigate the potential use of foundry sand dust and Waelz slag as novel resource in the ceramic industry. The research was performed under the framework of the Spanish Education and Science Ministry, Project CTM2009-11303 with Maria Coronado as FPI fellowship of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.

The work in Journal of Cleaner Production characterizes the acid gas emissions from three ceramic processes, containing foundry sand dust and Waelz slag as alternative raw materials, at laboratory scale by the combination of different analytical techniques such as DSC, XRD, EGA, FUS-ICP, ISE, INAA and FUS-IR that traditionally have been used in materials characterization. The work published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials, assess and models the leaching behavior of potentially hazardous metals from three different clay-based industrial ceramic products (wall bricks, roof tiles, and face bricks) containing foundry sand dust and Waelz slag as alternative raw materials.
