The third Italian Living Lab related to Fissac project took place on 4th October 2019 in Rozzano (Milan) hosted and organized by Rina Consulting. Similarly to the first Living Lab organized with the AIB (Industrial Association of Brescia) and the second Living Lab organized in collaboration with ATECAP, the Italian Technical Economic Association for Ready-Mixed Concrete, the third Living Lab represented a debate between different stakeholders involved in the Circular Economy and Industrial Symbiosis.
The main objective of this third Living Lab was to evaluate the replicability potential of circular economy models and platforms in the Italian scenario.
During the last four years, the FISSAC project reached several innovative results such as the demonstrations, the FISSAC model, the platform, etc. Nevertheless, the partners are planning and implementing many activities for the following months.
With the purpose of discussing the ongoing activities, Acciona, as project coordinator, organized the 9th General Assembly of the project. The partners met in Madrid on 28-29 November 2019 and they had the opportunity to visit the Acciona’s Demopark where the new FISSAC materials have been installed. On the demo site, they visited the precast concrete elements, the eco-wall and eco-porcelain tiles, and the wood-plastic composites.
During the two days of assembly, partners could benefit from the presence and the practical suggestions of the project adviser from EASME, Stefania Rocca. The assembly has been a great opportunity to analyse the goals reached during the four years of the project and to discuss the replicability and the follow-up of the FISSAC model.
The partners will meet again in two months at the FISSAC Final Conference, which will take place on 29 January 2020 in Brussels.
The FISSAC project has been presented at ECOMONDO – the Green technology Expo on the 8 November 2019, in Rimini (Italy). The FISSAC demonstrations have been illustrated by ACR+ during the conference “European research and innovation for the implementation of circular economy and bioeconomy”.
The H2020 FISSAC project has been brought as an innovative example of circular economy and industrial symbiosis in the construction value chain.
Finally, RINA, as FISSAC partner, contributed to the dissemination of the project during the whole duration of the exhibition.
“Industrial symbiosis, much like its natural counterpart, is a mutually beneficial relationship where the waste or surplus of one member is used by another. It is the cornerstone of a sustainable economy, and FISSAC tools could foster its expansion throughout Europe and beyond.”
An article regarding the FISSAC results has been published on CORDIS website, with the title: A novel cloud-based platform helps industries minimise waste and enhance sustainability.
