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.

Entrevista CETIM a Francisco Javier Prego Martínez | Responsable del Dpto. de I+D+i de Misturas

The first prize in the Galician Innovative Materials Competition for the EMULCELL project was public recognition of the solid teamwork to make this “green asphalt” viable. The award also demonstrates that the circular economy and sustainable materials can be applied in any sector thanks to R&D&I and the commitment of companies such as Misturas S.A., which led the initiative. “The demand for more efficient and environmentally friendly materials and construction techniques will increase in the coming years,” says Francisco Javier Prego Martínez, head of the R&D&I Department of the company from Ourense.

La biosolución LIFE REFOREST alcanza hasta el 80% de eficacia para reducir la erosión de suelos quemados por incendios

As it is a prefabricated system, it can be implemented more quickly than conventional systems.

Based on the three pilots installed in southern Galicia and central Portugal, a complete transferability and replicability plan has been developed for other European areas.

These conclusions were presented today during the European conference on forestry strategy organised by CETIM to close four years of R&D&I research applied in the framework of LIFE REFOREST.
