CircVol 2 – Utilization of side streams and masses of soil in the cities
The aim of CircVol 2 is to disseminate information to support cities and businesses in taking their carbon footprint into account and in making greater use of recycled materials. The aim is to consider the utilization of side-stream-based recycled materials in infrastructure construction sites instead of the use of virgin materials.
The CircVol 2 project enhances the sustainable reuse of high-volume flows and a sustainably built living environment that will also last for future generations. The project encourages the reuse and utilization of recycled materials in civil and urban construction, thus saving valuable and depleting natural resources.
During the project, three main results will be achieved:
- production of carbon footprint calculations for recyclable materials suitable for infrastructure construction
- production of new information on dredged material dumped on land and its management
- dissemination and rooting of the results of CircVol and CircVol 2 projects.
