LIFE CERSUDS, an interesting circular design initiative to help combat the negative effects of climate change

The European project Life Cersuds launches its website to inform about the innovative sustainable system of urban drainage. An interesting circular design initiative! You can visit us at:

The Institute of Ceramic Technology (ITC) as coordinator of the European project LIFECERSUDS Ceramic Sustainable Urban Drainage System has launched a few months ago the project website: .

In this website it is possible to know the characteristics of the project and its goals and objectives, in the languages of Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese, languages of the countries participating in LIFE CERSUDS, as well as being able to keep track of the different events, meetings, presentations, etc., which are already taking place since the beginning of this process, one of whose goals is to support the fight against the effects of climate change through the development of a sustainable urban drainage system that uses the ceramic material that may have been left in stock by Its low commercial value providing a new use, in this case to drain the water coming from the rains that at some times of the year in this geographical area become torrential.

In this way, LIFE CERSUDS presents itself from its website as an example of innovation focused on the use of a ceramic material that aims to improve the adaptability of cities to climate change and promote the use of green infrastructure in their urban plans.

From the website itself, which transmits an elegant and faithful brand image to the concept and purpose of LIFE CERSUDS, which has been created by the design studio Joan Rojeski, it is possible to subscribe to the newsletters generated by the project: so as to keep the citizens, administrations, contacts and stakeholders informed of the progress and results of this project, which is funded by the European Union LIFE Program 2014-2020  for the Environment and The Action for the Climate (with reference: LIFE 15 CCA / ES000091).

Under the coordination of the ITC, the participants of LIFE CERSUDS project are the University of Valencia (UPV), the Municipality of Benicàssim (Castellón, Spain), will host the demonstrator, the Centro Ceramico de Bolonia (CCB-Italia), CHM Obras e Infraestructuras, SA, Centro Tecnológico da Cerâmica e do Vidro (CTCV-Portugal) and the company Trencadís de Sempre, SL., Spain.
