tExtended’s sister projects, funded under the call HORIZON-CL4-2022-TWIN-TRANSITION-01, are REDOL and MOBICCON-PRO.

REDOL aims to transform cities into circularity hubs by exploiting the abundant source of solid urban waste (SUW).

The project will redesign 5 value chains for SUW and produce 12 circular products while implementing new solutions to upgrade waste management, enhance processing routes, and optimize value chains using digital tools. It will establish successful industrial-urban symbiosis (I-US) interactions and circularity hubs at the local level by providing organizational procedures, business models, and social innovation actions.

The project will be implemented in Aragon, with Zaragoza at the centre, and will support its transition towards a zero residues city by 2040. This approach will result in the development of guidelines and recommendations for decision-making bodies, increase citizens’ participation in separate collection schemes, and save 14B€ and 280 ktCO2/year by reusing or transforming 144.720 tons of SUW/year.

MOBICCON-PRO project introduces and demonstrates a systemic, circular and mobile solution in the South-East Europe (SEE) region to improve the recovery and recycling of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW).

The project combines physical solutions adapted to the ground (a mobile CDW treatment plant) with innovative selective separation and deconstruction technologies in order to scale up both the treatment of CDW and the production and use of recycled construction materials.

Beyond technical solutions, the partners of MOBICCON-PRO are conscious of the socio-economic drivers necessary for the transition to a circular economy. Therefore, cornerstone of the project will be the establishment of a territorial hub for CDW through which private, public and scientific key stakeholders, as well as citizens, will cooperate to bring circularity to the construction ecosystem in the region. The innovative equipment and mobile technical solutions will be demonstrated in different environments at local and regional level in order to prove the sustainability, viability and replicability of the systemic concept at a large scale. Moreover, the project also aims to shed light on the technical and policy measures needed to improve the overall legislative framework of construction products in order to facilitate the market uptake of recycled products, in line with the EU’s Circular Economy and Green Deal ambitions.
