Abstract: The aim of the eMinerals project (one of NERCs eScience testbed projects) is to use computational modelling to determine mineralogical process at an atomic level. Such information is difficult to study experimentally, but provides key information for e.g. our understanding of the transport and immobilisation processes of contaminants and the behaviour of radioactive waste materials. After running for 2.5 years the eMinerals project has shown to be very successful in its way of combining computer scientists with environmental scientists, chemists and physicists to model and handle realistic and complex environmental process, which has not previously been possible to study. Here, we summarise how the new grid tools allow us scientists in the eMinerals project to achieve new scientific goals.
