(Technological partner) Supporters: • Reciclajes Pozo-Cañada S.L.

  4. 4. 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Background: The project would like to tackle Organizers: environmental problems related to the effects of the greenhouse gas emissions that are produced during the production of structural ceramics for constructions, especially those of stoneware and clinker bricks. Supporters: In addition we will intent to provide a new usage for the recycled glass, so that we can tackle to environmental problems at the same time.

  5. 5. 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Organizers: Abstract: The influence of the recycled glass adition to the ceramic raw materials will be studied, in order to decrease the firing temperature of the stoneware Supporters: manufacturing. The project includes three levels of experimentation, lab, pilot plant and industrial plant, using different kinds of raw material, both clay and glass.

  6. 6. 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Objectives: The main goal of the project is the Organizers: reduction of the environmental impact in the structural ceramic sector through the introduction in the raw materials of glass as a flux. The use of glass causes a reduction of firing temperature, since the glass start to Supporters: melt at lower temperature than the ones used in stoneware production. Results: Energy saving 10-15%, by decreasing the firing temperature about 100 or 150 ºC. Reducing de JORGE VELASCO, HEAD CO2RIVAS (SUSTAINABLEOF CERAMICS.L.) COORDINATOR OF THE PROJECT/ RAQUEL emissions in ALCUBLAS AREA, 10-15%. DE Cerámica Innova 4: From research to market
  7. 7. 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Expected results Organizers: The use of recycled glass as a raw material suggests the transformation of a waste into resource thereby diversifying and broadening the possibilities of its use at Supporters: the end of its useful life. In this sense the use of glass as flux reduces the quality requirements of the source material, making it possible to use glass of any kind, composition, colour that for other processes are nonviable (glass from WEEE, glass from end of life vehicles, JORGE VELASCO, HEAD OF CERAMIC AREA, glass mixed in municipal solid COORDINATOR OF THE PROJECT/ RAQUEL waste).

  8. 8. 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Specific objectives: Organizers:  Cost reduction of the stoneware brick manufacturing process for two reasons: 1) decrease in the energy requirements, 2) decrease of the price of source raw Supporters: material. All this brings about a 15% saving in the manufacturing costs.  Cost reduction of glass recycling by reducing the requirements for its reuse and increasing the energy recovery possibilities of the same.
