Circular Economy

Circular Economy

We develop sustainable ceramic processes and products aligned with the principles of the circular economy, based on the efficient use of resources, access to raw materials, efficient use of products, i.e. any study that considers aspects related to sustainability throughout the entire life cycle.

We look for Best Available Technologies (BATs): Application and/or development of clean technologies. We analyse the sustainability and circularity of products and processes. We seek to recycle, reuse and valorise waste, in addition to promoting industrial symbiosis. We manage and optimise water resources in the ceramics industry.

We work towards the recovery of raw materials and by-products, while seeking to align products in the use phase with the circular economy.
