A paper will be given on the refurbishment of plasterboard by Gaiker, Loughborough University, ENVA and British Gypsum  

Researchers from Loughborough University, Gaiker, ENVA y British Gypsum – ICEBERG partners – will give a conference paper at the Sixth Symposium on Circular Economy and Urban Mining (SUM2022) between 18 and 20 May in Capri (Italy). The study is entitled “Laboratory scale evaluation of hyperspectral imaging sorting of refurbishment plasterboard waste”.

The objective of the ICEBERG project is to design, develop and validate innovative recycling systems and technologies to make it possible to produce high-value recovered materials with a low level of impurities (less than 8%) and are safe. Validation will be carried out on an industrial scale by means of six case studies in different locations in Europe, covering the circularity of concrete, ceramics, wood, plaster, insulating foams and super-insulating materials. It also seeks to improve the reliability and acceptability of recycled materials from construction waste. 

The SUM Symposium, organised biennially since 2012 by IWWG–International Waste Working Group, is the benchmark Forum for Circular Economy and Urban Mining, where scientists and stakeholders can debate cutting-edge results and focus on future needs. The 2022 edition (10th Anniversary) will take place from 18 to 20 May 2022 in Capri (Italy) at the Municipal Congress Centre. SUM 2022 is held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry for Ecological Transition, Campania Region, City of Capri and ENEA–Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development.
