Project description

The project will deploy exemplary pilot solutions of the Industrial-Urban Symbiosis (I-US) concept by demonstrating novel recovery methods for valuable elements from the ashes. Furthermore, the aluminosilicate-rich minerals recovered from the ashes are piloted as a feedstock for companies across value chains to obtain products for construction and wastewater treatment leading to increased resource efficiency and circularity. To fully realize the I-US concept also the engagement of citizens, civil society and end users are addressed in the project.
