From Mining to...

Project Description

TRIM4Post-Mining brings together a consortium of European experts from industry and academia to develop an integrated information modelling system. This is designed to support decision making and planning during the transition from coal exploitation to a re-vitalized post-mining landscape enabling infrastructure development for agricultural and industrial utilization, and also to contribute to recover energy and materials from coal mining dumps.

TRIM4Post-Mining will develop efficient methods for comprehensive spatio-temporal data analytics, feature extraction and predictive modelling that allow for the identification of potential contamination areas and forecasting the waste dump dynamics. It will be founded up on a high-resolution spatio-temporal data-base utilizing state-of-the art multi-scale and multi-sensor monitoring technologies that characterize dynamical processes in coal waste dumps related to timely dependent deformation and geochemical processes.
