El pasado 20 de octubre tuvo lugar en el CIS Tecnoloxía e Deseño de A Cabana (Ferrol) la jornada de presentación de los resultados de LIFE Drain Rain, proyecto que ha logrado la captación y mejora de la calidad de las aguas de escorrentía permitiendo además su reutilización para regadío, riego urbano y todo tipo de limpiezas y baldeo.

The results of pilots in Ferrol and Calasparra verify the elimination of pollutants, increasing the availability of a basic and now “circular” resource to reduce water stresses associated with droughts.

In the 1,744 water analysis developed, the removal of heavy metals, fossil fuel residues, pesticides and contamination by E. coli bacteria was verified.

The conclusions of this project funded by the LIFE program of the European Union were presented during the final event inaugurated by the director of the Port Authority of Ferrol-San Cibrao, Jesús Casás López.

Avances proyecto de investigación KEOPS par

CETIM is researching the production of more sustainable cements and concretes from construction and demolition waste, as well as steel slag from electric arc furnaces, within the framework of the KEOPS project.

KEOPS offers the potential to close the circle within the construction sector, making its waste the raw material with which to manufacture cements and concretes.

The initiative, supported by CETIM, brings together five business agents from the entire value chain of the construction sector: ADEC Global, Cromogenia, Cementos Cruz, Extraco and Prefhorvisa.
