The members of the Regional Working Group of the LIFE CERSUDS project met at ITC, as project coordinator, on Friday, 10 November 2017, to learn about the progress of the project and discuss, among other things, its replicability.
Castellón, October 25th, 2017. The Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC) as coordinator of the LIFE CERSUDS Ceramic Sustainable Urban Drainage System project, today brought together all the participants in this initiative whose objective is, according to Javier Mira, head of ITC's Habitat Area and principal investigator of the project:"to develop an urban sustainable drainage system (SUDS) that uses ceramic material of low commercial value as a paving filtering system. What we want with this system is to improve the ability of cities to adapt to climate change and promote the use of green infrastructures in urban development plans of municipalities.” And he adds: "That is why we have designed and are going to implement, in 2018, this SuDS on Torre San Vicent street, opposite the sports centre in the town of Benicàssim (Castellón), which has an important tourist activity. Precisely, we are now installing in an area close to the demonstrator the first street test of the system, which consists of a permeable surface made of ceramic pieces of low commercial value that, practically in a handmade way, have been cut and piled up forming this innovative system that will help to collect the excess water coming from torrential waters, and that later can be reused for the irrigation of landscaped areas ".
LIFE CERSUDS has attended Cersaie 2017 in Bologna (Italy), being the ceramic event that brings together all the world's attention from 25 to 29 September 2017. In terms of visitors, in 2016 there were 106,000 visitors from practically all over the world, and there were more than 111.000 in the edition of 2017. LIFE CERSUDS was present at the stand of the Bologna Ceramic Center (CCB), a member of the project, and was disseminated among visitors.
LIFE CERSUDS has been presented at the summit on ceramics organised by the Portuguese firm Mota, the Mota Summit: Ceramics: Let´s talk. Experts from ITC travelled to Portugal to talk about "Ceramic Tiles: Sustainability and Innovation", where the LIFE CERSUDS ceramic system, which uses ceramics in a way consistent with the circular economy by reusing material of low commercial value to build a sustainable urban drainage system capable of mitigating the negative effects of flooding, was used as an example.
The Castellón Provincial Council will reaffirm on the 22nd its commitment to Castellón tile "for its crucial weight in the economic and labour market fabric of Castellón" by organising the' First Conference on the Promotion of Ceramics in Urban Spaces' aimed at discovering architects, technical architects and engineers "the countless possibilities that ceramic material offers them when designing and executing public spaces". This was explained by the deputy for Economic Promotion, Salvador Aguilella in a press conference on 10 September. The aim of this conference is to make architects, technical architects and engineers aware of the possibilities that ceramic material offers them when designing and executing public spaces.
The Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC) as main coordinator of the european Project: LIFECERSUDS Ceramic Sustainable Urban Drainage System has launched on April 2017 the website of the project: www.lifecersuds.eu The characteristics of the project, its goals and objectives can be known in the languages Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese, languages of the countries participating in LIFE CERSUDS, as well as being able to keep track of the different events, meetings, presentations, etc.,which are already taking place since the beginning of this process, one of whose goals is to support the fight against the effects of climate change through the development of a sustainable urban drainage system that uses the ceramic material that may have been left in stock by Its low commercial value providing a new use, in this case the drainage of the water coming from the rain that at some times of the year in this geographical area become torrential. In this way, LIFE CERSUDS is presented from its website as an example of innovation focused on the use of a ceramic material that aims to improve the adaptability of cities to climate change and promote the use of green infrastructure in their urban plans. From the website itself, which transmits an elegant and faithful brand image to the concept and purpose of LIFE CERSUDS and which was created by the design studio Joan Rojeski, it is possible to subscribe to the newsletters generated by the project: http://www.lifecersuds.eu/en/documentos and thus maintain Informed of the progress and results of this project, which is funded by the European Union's LIFE Program 2014-2020 Program for Environment and The Climate (with reference: LIFE 15 CCA / ES000091). LIFE CERSUDS is coordinated by ITC and project partners include Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV); the Town Council of Benicàssim, the municipality that will house the demonstrator; Centro Ceramico de Bologna (CCB-Italy); CHM Obras e Infraestructuras, S.A.; Centro Tecnológico da Cerâmica e do Vidro (CTCV-Portugal); and the company Trencadís de Sempre, S.L.
More than 20 representatives of city councils, universities, research centers, companies and public bodies have gathered at the Universitat Politècnica of Valencia (UPV) in the frame of the LIFE CERSUDS project, to promote a model change in Sustainable Urban Drainage solutions.
The Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC), main coordinator of the LIFE CERSUDS project, received a visit on 29 March of a delegation from the Ministry of the Environment of Lithuania interested in knowing the project in order to consider the possibilities of the implementation of this project it in their municipalities.
Castellón, March 8th 2017.- The Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC), as coordinator of the European project LIFE CERSUDS Ceramic Sustainable Urban Drainage System disseminated during its international event Cevisama 2017 its characteristics and objectives, oriented, among other things, to favor the fight against the negative effects of climate change through the implantation of a sustainable urban drainage system whose demonstrator will be built on Sant Vicent Street in the municipality of Benicàssim (Castellón-Spain) Cevisama is one of the most important sectoral trade fairs on a worldwide scale (the other is Cersaie and is held in Bologna, Italy) in the field of ceramics industry and in this edition, according to the data of the organization, brought together 80,000 people ( In the last edition were 78,000). The ITC stand is located at the main entrance to the event, in front of the Ceramic Trans /Hitos Exhibition for Architecture and Interior Design, also executed by ITC and promoted by CEVISAMA with the support of ASCER, the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Ceramic Tiles and Pavements, a place of obligatory passage for all those thousands of visitors who during the week of February 20 to 24, 2017 walked through the enclosure.
