Thanks to the recommendations of the Close-to-Market team of the LIFE Programme, the LIFE PHIPP project was able to meet online with a similar type of project LIFE HYPOBRICK in December 2020.
The main aim of the meeting is to establish first contact and future cooperation between the LIFE HYPOBRICK project and the LIFE PHIPP project.
The LIFE HYPOBRICK project is intended as allies for the brick manufacturing industry in the transition to a circular economy. At the same time, by helping to address the negative impacts of climate change.
Project teams are working on the development of a manufacturing process for building bricks with very low CO2 emissions by reusing waste and scrap as raw material. This process reduces 90% of the energy consumed, since the new bricks, instead of being fired, are “cured” at around 100°C, reducing the CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 90%.
This technology will replicate in other materials such as tiles, roof tiles, pipes, slabs, and other non-ceramic materials such as concrete and its derivatives, which would represent a reduction of more than 80% of greenhouse gases emissions.
Project implementers agreed to further inform each other about the future development of projects and to meet again on presenting future prototypes.
