PROJECTS I R+D+I
Promoter: ITEC. Construction Technology Institute
Prototype development: Fetdeterra
Bloc-replastic is a project led by the Construction Technology Institute of Catalonia (ITeC) and subsidized by the Catalonia Waste Agency (ARC), with the participation of Eurecat and Fetdeterra, within the call for aid for the projects execution that promote the circular economy.
Plastic waste represents approximately a total of 0.3 million tons per year in Catalonia and 25.1 million tons per year in Europe. Some of these residues can be valued to improve the thermal behavior of some products and reduce the environmental impact. In this line, the Bloc-replastic project will reach the market to reduce and value plastic waste as building materials.
