High Temperature Processes and Industrial Ecology

The PYRO subgroup aims to develop more efficient and more sustainable extraction and refining processes and to provide insight in the phenomena occurring during high temperature processing.


The SREMAT subgroup aims to conceive and develop innovative processes to transform industrial wastes and by-products into engineered materials.


The Centre for High Temperature Processes and Sustainable Materials Management consists of a co-operation between the research group and leading materials and recycling companies, including Aperam, Umicore, Group Machiels, Orbix and Metallo Chimique.
