The FISSAC consortium met in Madrid in September to launch the project and formulate the work plan for the coming months. The project aims to develop and demonstrate a new paradigm of innovative industrial symbiosis for demolition, construction and energy intensive industries that will allow them to move towards a zero waste approach to resources. By harmonising technical and non-technical requirements the project aims to achieve closed-loop processes in a move towards a circular economy. The meeting ended with a site visit to Acciona Infrastructures test site for sustainable buildings.
