Involvement in the project
WP3: Contributions to the definition of the flow chart for the process of recycling the main waste in the Madrid-Henares area and its potential for use in the area and also contributions based on their experiences and knowledge prior to the evaluation of the value chain and SRM definition of the construction framework
WP5: Test performance for the definition of the construction products manufacturing procedure. Support the demonstrations of the pilot production plant in Spain, which will be built on the basis of the results of the batch tests that will be obtained in the FGP laboratories
WP6: Quality control during the pilot production and supervision of the pilot works executed in the Henares’ demos to guarantee the mechanical properties of the manufactured materials or used in demos. Assessment of the new products’ behavior once they are incorporated in the pilots, compared to the batch test results previously performed. Lead the WP 6.3 (revitalization of the degraded area with SRM-based construction products)
WP7: Contributions to the development of the LCA, providing information on new products manufactured with construction and demolition waste in the pilot demonstrations in Spain.
WP 8: Contributions to market analysis
WP9: Contributions to the dissemination by participating in promotional activities.
