This session covers the geology, mineralogy, crystal-chemistry aspects as well as the utilization, synthesis, properties, and occurrence of porous and nanostructured minerals (such as zeolites, clay minerals, or oxide nanoparticles). We particularly wish to highlight work that explores structure-property relationships at ambient conditions, but also at low and high temperature, and at high pressure. We hope to foster a broad discussion on the role of these minerals for geological, mineralogical, technological and environmental purposes. The growing number of new applications with higher added values of these minerals requires a thorough knowledge of their mineralogical and their crystal-chemical variability, as well as more efficient processing of end products. Contributions will include both natural and synthetic case studies and experimental or modeling works in various geological and technological processes and environments.

Food for good

food for good

As of 2015, Palacongressi di Rimini offers its clients the opportunity to recover leftover food from their events and donate it to charities . Palacongressi endorses Food For Good - from meeting to solidarity, an initiative born out of a collaboration between Federcongressi, Food Bank and Equoevento. Every year in Italy, over 6 tons of food go to waste; at the same time, there are 10 million people living in poverty, 6.3 of which in conditions of absolute poverty, including 1 million children between the ages of 0-5 years. The contribution of organisers and exhibitors at the Palacongressi is therefore of major importance: with no additional costs and in agreement with Summertrade chefs, the catering company of the Rimini Fiera Group and official partner of the Palacongressi, menus are planned which are suitable both for the guests' needs and for the conservation and transport of any leftovers, resulting in a worthy act of social responsibility for the local area. The results and the feedback we have had in the first months of the project speak for themselves. Contact our staff for more information: always ready to help guide your choice.  The association chosen by Palacongressi is Opera Sant'Antonio di Rimini, a group of volunteers that manages the city's soup kitchen.
