5 CETMA -Brindisi – Research Center Centro Riciclo Vedelago - Treviso - Company operating in the field of plastic recycling DFS Montenegro Engineering -Podgorica – Engineering company operating in sectors: infrastructure, energy and environment ACCIONA INFRAESTRUCTURAS S.A -Madrid – European leader in construction and civil infrastructure SGI Studio Galli Ingegneria SpA -Padova – Engineering company operating in the sectors: water, environment, energy, civil engineering and transport NUMIX Title: High performance lightweight aggregate for concrete from recycling of plastic waste Acronym: NUMIX Start: 1 July End: 30 June 2012 Budget: Budget:

6 I To promote an industrial process based on using the scrap resulting from the sorting of recycled plastics (from both solid urban and industrial/craftmade/commercial waste), to produce: II To develop a sizeable European market. 1. expanded granules to be used as aggregate for lightened structural and non- structural concrete, substituting the expanded clay; 2. densified flakes to be used as aggregate for mortar and as raw material for product 1. Project objectives

7 Benefit the environment by reducing the percentage of scrap resulting from the sorting of recycled plastics destined to incineration. Make available to construction industry a reliable, innovative, environmentally friendly, economically viable and competitive alternative for lightweight concrete and mortar production. environmentally friendly, economically viable and competitive alternative for lightweight concrete and mortar production. Create partnerships among European industries, involving industry operating in the field of: recycled plastic, which will be made able to produce the expanded granules, granules, concrete manufacturing, which will produce lightened concrete and mortar containing the innovative aggregates, mortar containing the innovative aggregates, concrete manufacturing, end-user of the building product containing the innovative aggregates. Expected results

8 expanded granules densified flakes Technicaldescription scrap resulting from the sorting of recycled plastics Technology for the production of densified flakes It is similar to the one traditionally used in the field of plastic recycling. It is similar to the one traditionally used in the field of plastic recycling. The innovation consists in the use as raw material of the scrap resulting from the selection of urban solid waste, mixed with industrial plastic waste. The innovation consists in the use as raw material of the scrap resulting from the selection of urban solid waste, mixed with industrial plastic waste. Blowing agent: Gypsum powder Technology for the production of expanded granules Extrusion/foaming process patented by CETMA. Extrusion/foaming process patented by CETMA. Raw materials: Raw materials: -scrap resulting from the sorting of recycled plastics (subject to the same process as product 2) -blowing agent: gypsum powder (by-product of sulphur anhydride treatment in the emission of power plants)

9 Rawmaterial Semi-finishedproducts Finishedproducts scrap resulting from the sorting of recycled plastics mortar e.g.:protective finishing layer e.g.: thermal/sound insulation concrete screed, prefabricated construction Target groups Industries operating in the field of plastic recycling Industries operating in the field of concrete manufacturing End-user of the building product expanded granules lightened concrete Products-Target groups densified flakes

10 High variability in the morphology and/or assortment of the recycled waste plastics High variability in the morphology and/or assortment of the recycled waste plastics The cost associated with the new lightweight aggregate could be prohibitive as compared with conventional lightweight aggregate for concrete such as expanded clay. The cost associated with the new lightweight aggregate could be prohibitive as compared with conventional lightweight aggregate for concrete such as expanded clay. The final cost of the raw material will also depend on national government subsidies available for the plastic recycling industry The final cost of the raw material will also depend on national government subsidies available for the plastic recycling industry Risks Incompatibility between the new lightweight aggregate and the traditional aggregate (e.g. sand) or cement Incompatibility between the new lightweight aggregate and the traditional aggregate (e.g. sand) or cement Technical risks Economic risks

11 Production of concrete in industrialised countries: 1.5 – 3 tons per capita Potential market

12 Market barriers Higher material and production cost Lack of sufficient valid and generally accepted guidelines, rules and standards Common scepticism related to new products properties, such as design/structural performance and durability
