Keraben Grupo presents the ICEBERG Project at the INNOTRANSFER Sustainable Habitat Forum

On 10 November, Luis Guaita, the R&D&i director at Keraben Grupo, a Spanish partner of the ICEBERG Project, took part in the INNOTRANSFER forum, an initiative to promote the transfer of knowledge and technology developed by the science parks of the Autonomous...

Lezama Demoliciones, an Iceberg Project partner, winner of the Best Demolition Job 2020

Lezama Demoliciones, a Basque company belonging to the ICEBERG consortium, has been awarded the AEDED Prize for the Best Demolition Job 2020, for its work in the dismantling and demolition of the former Foix thermal power plant (Cubelles, Barcelona), owned by Endesa...

Demolition waste forecasting for a better management and materials recovery

ICEBERG project will develop a new digital tool to support demolition planning and waste assessment. It will be tested in virtual demolitions and small building by the end of 2021 Building materials are highly relevant in the context of circularity, due to their high...

ICEBERG is committed to improving the automatic separation of mixed waste using hyperspectral sensors

GAIKER is already working on the development of an automated highly flexible and mobile prototype for processing C&DW One of the Spanish partners of ICEBERG project, GAIKER (Technological Centre) is involved in the development of an automated highly flexible and...

Partners from The Netherlands lead the case study on tracing circular concrete

Delf University of Technology has tested a RFID-based Integrated Material Passport System for recycled concrete aggregates. Closing the concrete loop prevents loss of value of concrete aggregates and has environmental benefits. In some EU member states, information...

The project

Based on volume, Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) is the largest waste stream in the EU. Proper management of CDW and recycled materials can have major benefits in terms of sustainability and the quality of life. It also can provide major benefits for the EU construction and recycling industry, as it boosts demand for recycled building materials.

This project aims to develop and demonstrate novel cost-effective circular smart solutions for an upgraded recovery of secondary building raw materials along the entire circular value chain: from end-of-life building materials (EBM) to new building products prepared for circularity, resource-efficiency and containing 30wt% to 100wt% of high-purity (>92%) recycled content. This will be undertaken through 6 pilot circular case studies, covering building materials accounting for more than 85% by weight of the European built environment. ICEBERG will also contribute to raising building circularity awareness among the stakeholder communities (local authorities, professionals, students and final building users).

ICEBERG will to make significant advances in the uptake of the circular economy in the building industry through the development of innovative circular reverse logistics’ tools and high-value secondary raw materials production technologies to establish market confidence and acceptability of recycled End-of-Life building materials.

A circular approach across the entire value chain with 3 Innovation keys

SMART SERVICES AND SOFTWARE

Sensors, artificial intelligence and blockchain to ensure greater information capture, process optimization and traceability to guarantee greater confidence in terms of quality throughout the value chain of resources and products for building.

ADVANCED SORTING/ RECYCLING TECHNOLOGIES

Advanced technologies for the classification and purification of resources from the end of life of construction products.

NEW CIRCULAR BUILDING PRODUCTS

Eco-design of new products and systems for building to incorporate the new criteria of circularity in the industrial manufacturing processes of the target products.

Case studies

ICEBERG solutions will be demonstrated (at TRL7) through 6 case studies across different locations in Europe (Finland, The Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Spain/France and Turkey) representing common European building typologies (residential and non-residential), execution practices and multiple building materials accounting for more than 85% of the European built environment.
