New Circular Economy Business Model for More Sustainable Urban Construction

CINDERELA pilot production of prefabricated blocks from recycled aggregates is pawing the way to sustainable urban development

In August 2020, the Institute for Spatial Policies (IPOP) published a call for Cities to cities, where municipalities and public companies were invited to share their good practices of sustainable urban development. The call was dedicated to collecting good practices that address complex challenges of sustainable urban development using holistic and inclusive approaches.

Practices that work well and deliver the desired results and can serve as inspiration or a model that can be transferred to other environments. Nigrad d.o.o. - partner of the CINDERELA project from Slovenia applied for the mentioned tender - proposing the pilot production of secondary building materials - production of prefabricated blocks from recycled aggregates within the CINDERELA project (Horizon 2020 scheme).

The evaluation commission selected 15 good practices from the set of 29 applications received, which meet best the criteria and Nigrad's proposal referring to the CINDERELA pilot was recognised  among the selected ones ( The good practices are currently presented at IPOP website and will be also published soon in a publication dedicated to  good practices for sustainable urban development in Slovenia.
