At 11:30 the partecipants had a break and subsequently  the work  continued with the introduction of Micro and Biominerals in Environmental and Human Health Issues focused on the  micro minerals (including clay minerals) in environmental processes as well as their impact on human health, led  by    Claudia Belviso – researcher CNR-IMAA.

The researcher  presented  the following activities :

–          Speciation of metals in  the presence of clay minerals in contaminated areas;

–          Experimental alteration of chrysolite and termolite, development of models for the assessment of asbestos risks;

–          Mineralogical and chemical characterization of atmospheric particulate;

–          Analysis  of the mineralogical factors  in land degradation phenomena ( erosion, salinisation, ladslides).

After the last presentation the participants were divided into two groups guided by the two researchers  and visited the laboratories.
