The Conference ‘Marine sands as a precious resource’ will be held in the Museum of Natural Sciences, Brussels
To frame long-term resource use, keynote speaker Prof. dr. Ester van der Voet, Industrial Ecologist at Leiden University, and member of the UNEP Resource Panel, will speak about methodology development, such as material flow analysis, natural resource accounting, and sustainability indicator development. Applications include bio-based economy and circular economy.
Interactive demonstrations will be held on the newly developed tools: volumetric 3D pixel (‘voxel’) models, numerical impact models accounting for geological boundary conditions, a geological data portal and the resource decision support module. Side events include a Virtual Reality experience, and a discussion on data fusion in a European context. Free participation, but register before May 26. E-mail to: email@example.com.
