HISER

Holistic Innovative Solutions for an Efficient Recycling and Recovery of Valuable Raw Materials from Complex Construction and Demolition Waste

Time Project Coordinator Funding Scheme

End date: January 2019
Fundacion Tecnalia Research & Innovation Horizon 2020
Call: WASTE-3-2014
Recycling of raw materials from products and buildings

 

Challenge

The main goal of HISER project is to develop and demonstrate novel cost-effective technological and non-technological holistic solutions for a higher recovery of raw materials from ever more complex Construction & Demolition Waste (C&DW), by considering circular economy approaches throughout the building value chain (from the End-of-Life Buildings to new Buildings).

Approach

RINA will contribute to the development of specific standards and certification schemes that can aid in boosting market uptake of the developed new products involving secondary C&DW-recovered raw materials. Standardisation and certification are essential in many policy instruments.
Moreover, standardisation and certification work together to remove market barriers, to assure safety, to increases the compatibility of products and to promote common technical understanding.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 642085.

Conclusion

Harmonized procedures complemented with an intelligent tool and a supply chain tracking system, for highly-efficient sorting at source in demolition and refurbishment works.
Advanced sorting and recycling technologies for the production and automated quality assessment of high-purity raw materials from complex C&DW.
Development of optimized building products (low embodied energy cements, green concretes, bricks, plasterboards and gypsum plasters, extruded composites) through the partial replacement of virgin raw materials by higher amounts of secondary high-purity raw materials recovered from complex C&DW.
These solutions will be demonstrated in demolition projects and 5 case studies across Europe. Moreover, the economic and environmental impact of the HISER solutions will be quantified, from a life cycle perspective (LCA/LCC), and policy and standards recommendations encouraging the implementation of the best solutions will be drafted.
