Zeilarn (Germany) June 26, 2022.- The entire LIFE HYPOBRICK Project consortium travels to the Schlagman Poroton facilities in Zeilarn-Germany.

 

The reason is none other than the celebration of the 3rd LIFE HYPOBRICK Meeting with the monitor Sara Barcelò from NEEMO, as a representative of the European Commission, and which is financed by the European Union through the LIFE Program (Ref.: LIFE 18 CCM/ES/001114).

During the day, the facilities of the important brick company Schlagman Poroton with a production of more than 20,000 bricks per day were visited. Directed by Jens
Geduhn as Technical Director, the different brick manufacturing processes have been shown, and specifically the prototypes made within the framework of the LIFE HYPOBRICK project.

On the occasion of this face-to-face meeting of the LIFE HYPOBRICK consortium, the participants have been able to see in situ the progress of the prototypes and draw up the planning to be able to carry out tests on an industrial scale, both at the Schlagman Poroton facilities in Germany and in Ladrillos Mora in Spain.

CIRCLEAN’S WORKSHOP

Last Friday at the #CircLean workshop, Mónica Vicent Cabedo explained the present and future of industrial symbiosis in the ceramic sector. He stressed that the sector reuses about 85% of its waste and therefore, yes, there is industrial symbiosis in the ceramic sector. At ITC – Institute of Ceramic Technology, we work on several projects to make ceramics increasingly circular. Thanks to Monica for giving a touch of those related to industrial symbiosis!

LADRILLOS MORA BEGINS PILOT TESTS

June 2, 2022 
On May 30, and within the LIFE HYPOBRICK project, the industrial partner LADRILLOS MORA began pilot tests for the manufacture of bricks through the alkaline activation process. The first results are satisfactory, and it hopes to finish the pilot tests in the coming weeks. It is a great advance and a preliminary step to the industrial tests that will be carried out in the coming months. The benefits obtained in terms of energy consumption, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and CO2 have already been verified, and it only remains to wait for the results of the mechanical, physical and chemical tests.

THE LIFE HYPOBRICK PROJECT IS PRESENTED TO THE CITY COUNCIL OF SAGUNTO (VALENCIA)
