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 ".
