Residue-based construction materials produced on-site, supported by EIT RawMaterials
RECOVER contributes to the saving of primary resources and the reduction of CO2 emissions in the cement industry and promotes the circular economy. The RECOVER consortium works on the upscaling of processes for the development of sustainable construction materials from metallurgical residues such as bauxite and copper slag.
The project aims to build and install modular and mobile upscaling units on industrial sites to facilitate the production of construction materials from metallurgical residues. The unit can serve as an upscaling hub for the valorisation of several waste streams, urban or industrial. The materials produced can also be recycled or themselves reduced.
This project is supported by EIT RawMaterials.
