Introduction

The project aims to develop and test a new process for recovering and treatment of sludge that come from the processing of siliceous and carbonate agglomerated stones. The reintroduction of the waste itself, after proper treatments, in the same industrial sector and in any other sectors has the following goals: 

  • Reduction of industrial waste currently landfilled in Europe.

  • Reduction of the need to dig raw materials, quartz and marble 1,5 times the recovered materials. 

  • Saving more than 75% CO2 emissions in the processing and disposal of waste. 

  • Reduction of the current cost to dispose waste.
