Abstract
Tailings from tungsten mining activities in the vicinity of Barruecopardo (Salamanca) represent high environmental pollution. In this paper we present a study of the use of these wastes as raw materials for the manufacture of glass. This procedure aims to contribute to environmental remediation of mining areas through vitrification, a process which offers an alternative for stabilization of hazardous wastes. In addition, the marketing of the obtained product would provide an additional income to...
