The objective of the project is to achieve zero waste in the manufacture of tiles by the company.
This objective is aligned with the company’s strategy to become a sustainable company, continuing the important task of recovering waste generated throughout manufacturing process.
Currently, the only ceramic waste that remains to be recycled is the fired clay waste, which is not recycled due to its hardness and the low cost of the raw materials used. This waste is classified as non-hazardous and is currently destined for landfill.
To facilitate the recycling of this waste, the company has replaced the bar mil, with a pendular mill of greater milling capacity, which will be adapted throughout the project to mill the cooked . The introduction of the potsherd will also involve the modification of the rest of the components in the different stages of the process (pressing,glazing , first and second firing ) to guarantee the characteristics and quality of the tiles remains unchanged.
This project with IMINOB / 2018 / file has been selected within the framework of the ERDF Operational Program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. Funded by the Generalitat Valenciana, through the IVACE, and the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
