Following four years of work on improving the recycling of flat glass waste across Europe, the FISSAC* project will come to an end with its final conference this month.
Taking place on 29 January in Brussels, the event will celebrate the progress achieved before focusing on industrial symbiosis, the FISSAC model and the next steps of the project.
British Glass and Glass Technology Services have worked with FISSAC over the course of its work, with British Glass as a partner in the project and Glass Technology Services providing support on multiple initiatives under the FISSAC banner, including eco-cement and the refurbishment of the Burrell Collection in Glasgow.
Both companies also collaborated on the ‘Living Labs’ concept, which brought together the whole glass supply chain, from architects to glass recyclers, to educate them on flat glass recycling.
Representatives from Glass Technology Services will be in attendance alongside other stakeholders in the FISSAC project from around Europe and members of the construction and demolition value chain.
Registration for the event is free with the conference offering useful insight for anyone working in a public authority, a private company, a student of architecture, engineering and urban planning, a researcher, an NGO, or an individual interested in the circular economy.
* The FISSAC project is working to increase recycling of construction waste by partnering with the manufacturing, demolition and construction sectors to trial the use of secondary raw materials made from glass, ceramic, slags, stone, rubber, plastic and wood wastes. The FISSAC project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement no 642154. Find out more at www.fissacproject.eu
