Success studies

In this space you can find some examples of projects that have been successful working with us. 

Stone-like materials from recycled plastic bottles. During the last 30 years, natural stone, used as a building material in the kitchen has been largely replaced by composite stone, mainly due to its better surface properties and modern design options.

The SUSTONABLE project proposes a pioneering building material that has the physical shape and properties of engineered (quartz) stone, but it is thinner, ultra-light and having a better impact resistance. The product is made with natural minerals bond by recycled PET from plastic bottles and will be more affordable than comparable materials in the market. The project aims to create the next generation stone surface materials and contribute to the new sustainable circular economy. 

Circular models for high-performance construction materials. In the 2019 European Green Deal, the building sector is highlighted as a key focus in the green transition. If no action is taken to improve energy efficiency in this sector, energy demand is expected to rise by 50 % by 2050. The production of construction material is a huge CO2 emitter and changes the natural properties of virgin materials, rendering them non-biodegradable waste. This industry is also responsible for considerable water consumption and waste generation

The RE-CREATE project proposes regenerative construction materials and products that consume minimal energy and produce minimal emissions. They are made using a high percentage of byproducts and recycled materials and are recyclable and biodegradable. They meet or exceed all construction criteria and have superior thermal insulation, allowing the transition into a circular building construction industry.

Retrofit Conversion of all existing Gasoline- and Diesel cars into Hybrid Electric. . Climate change has pushed many entities, including the EU, to consider greener transportation options. Electric or hybrid cars have seen much interest since this push. Since they must be produced from scratch and purchased by customers, they are an inefficient solution on their own.

The NESS project will develop a cost-efficient, effective, dual hybrid technology, which can be utilised as an add-on component to convert fossil fuel, petrol and diesel cars into hybrid electric vehicles. This solution would make greener car implementation more achievable, while reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions.

Towards a sustainable construction industry. In the circular economy, the use of the materials is extended as much as possible to include concepts such as recycling, reinventing, and reusing at the end of each stage of their use. This gives maximum value to each material or resource. The circular economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economies of “Make-Use-Dispose.”

The Flexofibers project introduces a groundbreaking circular economy approach for manufacturing steel fibers using second-life materials. By leveraging this method, high-impact resistant concrete can be produced with a significantly reduced environmental impact. Furthermore, this initiative aims to accelerate the adoption of sustainable building materials within the construction value chain. Simultaneously, it provides an opportunity for the tire industry to embrace the principles of the circular economy.
