The FISSAC project – Fostering Fissac HIndustrial Symbiosis for a Sustainable Resource Intensive Industry across the extended Construction Value Chain – involves stakeholders at all levels of the construction and demolition value chain to develop a methodology, and software platform to facilitate information exchange, that can support industrial symbiosis networks and replicate pilot schemes at local and regional levels.

Project co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, 2015 - 2020.

Highlights

The project’s scenarios are now being tested at real scale with the implementation of five case studies. All the demonstration activities deal with products previously developed (at laboratory and pilot scales) through closed loop recycling processes: green concrete pavement road, green concrete blocks, pre-cast concrete pavers and New Jersey barriers, eco-wall and eco-porcelain tiles, and innovative wood plastic composites. The FISSAC IT Platform also processed the case studies to assess the feasibility from both environmental and economic points of view.
 
The social and non-technical factors were particularly addressed through the organisation of several Living Labs. The consortium carried out a replicability assessment of the FISSAC Industrial Symbiosis model at different levels, aiming eventually at replicating it in EU countries not involved in the project, and within different areas for different products.
