The construction industry: the recycled materials sector under study
The technology Nobatek/INEF4 resources centre, based at the Arkinova Technology Park, is carrying out a study on new recycling channels for industrial waste. The aim is to use recycled components in the building sector in the Basque Country.
The aims of Bil Ta Garbiare the processing and recycling of household and assimilated waste in the areas of the Basque Country Urban Authority (158 communes) and of the Béarn des Gaves Community of Communes (53 communes). In line with its “Zero waste, zero wastage” target, the association is focusing on new channels for recycled materials in the construction industry.
Bil Ta Garbi has submitted a study to the Nobatek/INEF4 Centre focusing on the opportunities for creating channels dedicated to materials based on recycled components for the construction sector. The teams of the Nobatek/INEF4 Centre have the task of mapping the sources of industrial waste in the Basque country, as well as of identifying stakeholders and particularly those already manufacturing products based on recycled materials. The study will therefore allow us to identify synergies and opportunities for the use of new recycled materials
This study is funded by the ADEME (French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management), and is directly linked to the CYCLABAT. project. The latter has the aim of developing new channels for the recycling of industrial waste as construction products and offering a (totally or partially recycled) demonstration building in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
