On May 18 "Earth and Man" National Museum received 2 donations from the Institute of Mineralogy and Crystallography at BAS. They are the work of two young scientists: Dr. Eng. Alexander Nikolov and Dr. Borislav Zhivkov Barbov - senior assistants at the institute.

The first is in the field of geopolymers - a group of inorganic building materials with a structure resembling natural rock-forming minerals. The donation includes samples of lightweight geopolymer based on fly ash from TPP Maritsa AES, Galabovo and geopolymers made from waste slag from the Aurubis plant in Pirdop.

The second donation is in the field of a unique group of minerals, such as zeolites. The museum already has samples of seven synthetic zeolites derived from coal ash and rice husk ash.

Both donations have an extremely wide practical application in many areas and are a contribution of Bulgarian scientists in the development of environmental technologies. They will be available in the "Earth and Man" National Museum after June 19 as new arrivals from the 2020/2021 season.
