Demonstrator LIFE CERSUDS

30.10.2018 Work

The LIFE CERSUDS demonstrator in Benicasim (Castellón) is a European project for the adaptation of cities to climate change. It develops an urban system of sustainable drainage from the reuse of ceramic tiles of low commercial value. The reduction of CO2 emissions associated to the manufacturing of pavements thanks to recycling the material of the ceramic stock, the decrease of the sealed floor areas in the cities, the recovery of natural infiltration systems to avoid flooding and the reduction of the heating known as “heat island” effect, are the aims to which this project will give response providing qualified and verifiable results.

This video shows the manufacturing process of the ceramic drainage pavement as well as its execution and implementation at the Benicasim demonstrator.
