On the 25th and 26th of February 2019, FISSAC team joined the World Resources Forum in Antwerp. At the “Industrial Symbiosis in Euorpe” booth, FISSAC, together with other SPIRE Projects (SHAREBOX, EPOS, SYMBIOPTIMA, URBANREC), showcased the ongoing activities and exposed some samples of the products being produced.
The FISSAC Industrial Symbiosis Platform was presented by the partner RINA during a conference.
It was a great opportunity to meet people, exchange ideas and draw inspiration for the next challenges.
Special greetings to IRIS and OVAM for the organizaion.
British Glass and Glass Technology Services will be attending Futurebuild 2019 after being invited by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to exhibit in the “Innovation Zone”
Together they will discuss innovation in construction and particularly the FISSAC model to help move construction towards a circular economy. There will also be samples of the eco-cement innovation there for people to see and feel as a key talking point.

On 11th December 2018 the Second Italian Living Lab took place, organized by RINA in collaboration with ATECAP, the Italian Technical Economic Association for Ready-Mixed Concrete.
In line with the first Living Lab organized last year with the AIB (Industrial Association of Brescia), the second Living Lab has represented a moment of confrontation between the various stakeholders involved in various ways in the recovery of material. The main aim of the Living Lab was to highlight the critical issues and opportunities related to the circular economy, which is now considered indispensable for companies. Different representatives from the cement and concrete industry, recycled aggregate producers and stakeholders involved in the selection of construction products containing recycled materials, such as designers and construction companies, were involved in the event.
