ECO TILES Project
The LIFE ECO TILES project will demonstrate the possibility to produce fully recycled (up to nearly 70%) pre-casted cement-based products (Terrazzo tiles) using recycled glass from urban and industrial waste, ceramic and Construction & Demolition Waste (CDW).
The production will have a substantial less (-20%) environmental impact than for traditional tiles and achieve the manufacture of high-grade pre-casted products.
ECO TILES products will contribute to the achievement of EU 2020 goals on Waste and Resource Efficiency, by reducing emissions, resource waste, impacts on human health and the environment.
The project sees the collaboration between the scientific expertise of the Mineralogy-Petrology group at University of Camerino for the study of geomaterials, and the Grandinetti company, leader in Italy specialized in the production of traditional and artistic terrazzo tiles. The partners are located in the Marche Region (Italy), an area where history and tradition fit well with technology and innovation.
