ROSE - Recycling Of Secondary raw materials for a sustainable optimization of construction processes in civil Engineering 




The goal is to increase the use of Secondary Raw Materials (SRM) in construction engineering processes. The SRM the commitment intends to work on are: mining and quarrying tailings, construction and demolition waste, fly ash, paper mill waste, yarn mill waste, textile fibre waste, plastic waste. A proper combination of these SRM will be treated and processed to develop innovative solutions with added economic value for geotechnical, structural and functional applications. Most of the proposed activities have already been studied and tested at a research level (lab or small scale models). The objective is to foster a virtuous process of industrial application at EU scale, putting together multidisciplinary academicians, waste producers, recycling companies, socioeconomic researchers and stakeholders to prepare and test new environmentally compatible products to be introduced into market.


Expected impacts 

The expected impacts of the activities of the proposed commitment are:
