Circularity in the Built Environment Conference Rescheduled in 2021

We regret to inform you that taking into account the recent advice provided by several organizations and by the advisory committee, the Circularity in the Built Environment Conference Organisational Committee has decided to postponed the conference from 22-24 September 2020 to March 2021.

VEEP team will inform you as soon as possible on the new dates of the conference: stay tuned for more updates!

VEEP mock-ups installed!

Do you know that VEEP mock-ups have been installed in our project site?

We are glad to announce that three mock-ups have been built in 2 different climatic scenarios in
order to evaluate the performance of VEEP panels: at the ACCIONA´s Ecopark in Madrid (Spain)
and at the STRUKTON´s facilities in Hoorn (Netherlands).

VEEP mock-ups were built by project partner Strukton starting from December 2019 until February
2020. n particular, there are 3 project mock-ups:
  1. “reference building”
  2. “new building”
  3. “retrofitting building”.
The mock-ups were built with the novel panels, which were designed and developed within our
project. Those panels were developed with recycled aggregates from EOL concrete and produced
with the innovative technology (ADR and HAS), developed by project partners TUDelft and C2CATechnology.

Moreover, different type of sensors have been installed to monitoring the efficiency of new panels
and to quantify energy, acoustic and durability performance of each PCE solution. This will strongly
improve the monitoring assessment as the data will be compared to experimental data collected
on the reference building located in same climatic conditions.

Stay tuned for more updates!

VEEP Final Conference (event postponed in March 2021 due to COVID-19 outbreak)

Transferring knowledge to the market (event postponed in March 2021 due to COVID-19 outbreak)

After four years, VEEP Project will successfully end in September 2020.

During the project, we managed to develop the following innovative construction materials:
  • A greener and more resistant Silica Aerogel, which is one of the best material for the insulation application
  • New and green concrete formulations
  • Two novel multilayer Precast Concrete Elements (PCEs) through the smart combination of VEEP concrete, aerogel composites and innovative plastic formworks
Moreover, VEEP implemented an Advanced Drying Recovery (ADR), which is a mechanical system of sorting and classifying wet Construction and Demolition Waste particles according to their particle size. The system requires seven working days to dismantle and assemble it again, so a new design to fit the truck and to reduce the assembling/disassembling from 7 days to 1 day has been achieved within VEEP.

Also a novel HAS, which is a technology designed to further expose the fine fraction aggregates into a hot gas so as to remove the associated moisture of aggregates and also destroy undesirable Construction and Demolition Waste contaminants pilot plant (3ton/hour) has been developed. The HAS technology has shown to improve quality properties of the ultrafine recycled particles in an important way for its application as an addition in new green cements.

Would you like hear and discover first-hand all our results?

Would you like to know how to transfer all the knowledge acquired in the framework of our project to the market and take part in the replicability workshop?

Are you interested in creating a network with all stakeholders for further dissemination and coordinate with other research institutions involved in similar projects?

Join VEEP Final Conference organised by project partner BIBM in cooperation with our coordinator RINA in the framework of BIBM Congress on Wednesday 6 May 2020 from 10:00 am to 16:30 pm.

International Workshop on Environmental Management, Science and Engineering 2018

VEEP team took part in IWEMSE 2018 to discuss about Life cycle costing on emerging technology for high quality recycling of concrete in Europe

The International Workshop on Environmental Management, Science and Engineering (IWEMSE) is an event dedicated to the promotion of scientific information interchange between researchers and practitioners in the fields of Environmental Management, Science and Engineering.

The 2018 edition was held in Xiamen, Fujian, China from June 16 to June 17, 2018.

VEEP project partner Leiden University took part in the event to give a presentation about economic analysis on ADR and HAS, entitled “Life cycle costing on emerging technology for high quality recycling of concrete in Europe: from lab-scale to industrial-scale”. 

The large amount of End-of Life concrete generated during the demolition stages in Europe and the traditional treatment of it often results in considerable economic impact. Over the last years, novel technology has been developed aiming to guarantee high quality recycled concrete aggregates for use in new concrete manufacturing, thereby closing the concrete loop. 

The innovative technology of integrated Advanced Drying Recovery (ADR) and Heating-Air classification System (HAS) is developing for cost-effectively and high value-added recycling of concrete. To ensure the proposed ADR and HAS solution will lead to a more cost-effective EOL concrete management, the paper uses LCC as a tool from a financial perspective to quantify the potential economic improvement of the emerging EOL recycling solutions shifting from lab-scale to industrial-scale.  


VEEP partner TECNALIA took part in the 10th International Conference on the Environmental and Technical Implications of Construction with Alternative Materials

Wascon 2018 took place in Tampere, Finland, from 6 to 8 June 2018 and it aimed at showing both the state of the art and the future developments in the field of construction.
Main  topics discussed during the conference regarded lessons learnt from practical projects, interaction and chemical compatibility with other materials and structures, new products, applications and machinery, LCA and emission modelling and much more.

VEEP project partner TECNALIA participated in session 2A “Recycling of C&DW I”, that took place on Wednesday, 6th of June 2018. 
In particular, Jaime Moreno, Iñigo Vegas , David Garcia and Eunate Goiti held a presentation titled “From C&DW to high added value prefabricated concrete components – The European VEEP project”.

Over the last years, novel technologies have been developed aiming to guarantee high quality of recycled materials for their use in new materials (specially recycled concretes), thereby closing the loop. However, some wastes still faces technical barriers to be incorporated into new materials/products and consequently, they are often down-cycled. It is, for example, the case of fine recycled concrete fractions (0-4 mm), or the case of minor (e.g. glass) and emerging (e.g. mineral wool) C&DW materials that have not yet found technological and business solutions along with their whole circular supply chain, being mostly landfilled.

On the other hand, concrete is the most widely used material in building, with a growing trend towards prefabrication. The European precast concrete sector and its associated supply chain face diverse needs for improvement in resource efficiency (reduction in natural resource consumption, design for reuse, increase, lighter solutions, enhanced thermal performance etc.) leading to higher competitiveness.

To face these challenges, the main objective of the VEEP project (Horizon 2020) is to eco-design, develop and demonstrate a series of new cost-effective technological solutions for the massive retrofitting of our built environment, aiming at cost-effectively reducing building energy consumption. These new technological solutions will lead to novel closed-loop circular approaches for C&DW recycling into novel multilayer precast concrete elements PCEs (for both new buildings and refurbishment) incorporating new concretes as well as superinsulation material produced by using at least 75% (by weight) of C&DW recycled materials.
