Synopsis top ↑

Volume 29 of Krystalinikum adresses petrologic problems of environmental geology. The articles describe among others, the creation of geoparks and didactic trails in Central Europe, the influence of the structure of rocks and soils on the environment and living conditions (radon production, soil pollution) and especially the possibilities of using various industrial waste materials as secondary raw and construction materials. Tests over a period of more than ten years are evaluated to assess the possibility of recycling coal ash from thermal power plants and metal slags. A paper on the use of rare rock types to manufacture weapons in primeval Europe concludes this volume.

Inhaltsbeschreibung top ↑

Die Beiträge in diesem Band sind umweltgeologischen Themen gewidmet. Die Beiträge beschäftigen sich mit der Gründung von Geoparks und Lehrpfaden in Mitteleuropa, mit dem Einfluß der Zusammensetzung der Gesteine und Böden auf die Lebensbedingungen (Radonproduktion, Bodenverschmutzung) und vor allem mit den Möglichkeiten der Nutzung verschiedener Produktionsabfälle als Sekundärrohstoffe und Baumaterialien. Es werden über mehr als 10 Jahren durchgeführte Tests ausgewertet, die Möglichkeiten der Aufbereitung von Abfall besonders aus Wärmekraftwerken (Aschen) und der Metallindustrie untersuchen. Das Heft schliesst mit Artikel über die Nutzung von seltenen Gesteinen zur Werkzeugherstellung im frühgeschichtlichen Europa.
