The FISSAC partner TCMA, the Turkish Cement Manufacturers’ Association, organised a warm welcome at the Turkish Cement Industry Employer Union (ÇEİS).
During the two-day meeting, each task leader presented the activities carried out over the last six months, highlighting the project progress and sharing ideas to face the forthcoming challenges. Concrete results have been shown such as the production at pre-industrial scale of cement, ceramic tiles and rubber-wood-plastic composites implementing industrial symbiosis p rocesses. Based on these, the industrial scale process is ready to be tested. Several Upcoming Living Labs are going to inspire the whole project with creative inputs.

On behalf of the whole FISSAC Consortium, we would like to thank very much TCMA for the wonderful organization!
