After four years, VEEP Project (funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No: 723582) will successfully end in September 2020.
During the project, led under the coordination of RINA, the Project Consortium managed to develop the following innovative construction materials:
- A greener and more resistant Silica Aerogel, which is one of the best material for the insulation application
- New and green concrete formulations
- Two novel multilayer Precast Concrete Elements (PCEs) through the smart combination of
- VEEP concrete, aerogel composites and innovative plastic formworks
Moreover, VEEP implemented an Advanced Drying Recovery (ADR), which is a mechanical system of sorting and classifying wet Construction and Demolition Waste particles according to their particle size. The system requires seven working days to dismantle and assemble it again, so a new design to fit the truck and to reduce the assembling/disassembling from 7 days to 1 day has been achieved within VEEP.
Also a novel HAS, which is a technology designed to further expose the fine fraction aggregates into a hot gas so as to remove the associated moisture of aggregates and also destroy undesirable Construction and Demolition Waste contaminants pilot plant (3ton/hour) has been developed. The HAS technology has shown to improve quality properties of the ultrafine recycled particles in an important way for its application as an addition in new green cements.
Would you like to know how to transfer all the knowledge acquired in the framework of our project to the market and take part in the replicability workshop?
