ICEBERG will be present during the first worshop of the Blackcycle project
The European project BlackCycle organises its first workshop on 22nd November in the context of the RDI Michelin campus (Cébazat – France). The objectives of the Blackcycle, and those of other Horizon 2020 projects that work in different sectors of activity to promote circular economy in Europe will be presented.
The event, which will start in person and also online at 8:30 a.m., aims to be a forum for debate, transmission and exchange of experiences and knowledge. David García Estévez, project manager at ICEBERG, will have the opportunity to briefly explain the objectives, progress and technologies to be developed and scaled in the context of the ICEBERG project, which was launched a year and a half ago and where 35 public and private organisations from ten countries participated.
The ICEBERG Project aims to design, develop and validate innovative recycling systems and technologies for end-of-life building materials, which allow reliable and high-value recovered streams with a low level of impurities (under 8%) to be produced. The industrial-scale validation will be conducted by means of six case studies at different locations in Europe. They will thus cover the circularity of concrete, ceramics, timber, plaster, insulating foams and super-insulating materials. A further aim is to improve the reliability and acceptability of recycled materials from construction and demolition waste.
The BlackCycle project, coordinated by Michelin, aims to create, develop and optimize a complete value chain for recycling tires at the end of their life, in the form of material first to reduce the impact on the environment. This first free workshop will be an opportunity to present the state of progress of the project but also to discuss with the stakeholders interested and involved in the creation of this value chain.
