The construction sector is the most resource intensive industrial sector in the EU. It uses around 50% of the available primary raw materials and has a heavy impact on the environment. In such a situation, focusing on the use of secondary raw materials is as important as ever.
SeRaMCo is an Interreg NWE project focused on the production of Concrete Precast Products (CPPs) made from recycled Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW). Lead by the University of Kaiserslautern (DE), the geographical area covered by the project includes the following countries: Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland. SeraMCo’s goal is to produce CPPs entirely from CDW.
Schuttelaar & Partners' role within SeraMCo
SeRaMCo has a market-oriented approach: the materials and the final products need to be appealing for the market in order to be successfully sold and spread. S&P leads the Long-Term Work Package of the project, whose main objective is to investigate the market possibilities for CPPs from recycled CDW and to develop a business plan for a long-term and sustainable market environment. S&P also takes care of the communication aspects of the project, namely the website, social media management, event monitoring and newsletters.
