Last 9 November IK4-AZTERLAN hosted on their premises of Durango (Spain) the workshop “INICIATIVAS INNOVADORAS ORIENTADAS A IMPULSAR LA ECONOMÍA CIRCULAR DE LAS ARENAS DE FUNDICION” (Novel initiatives for stimulating circular economy of foundry sand). The event, organised in the framework of the activities of the project LIFE ECO-SANDFILL, focused on SFS valorisation alternatives, discussing results obtained by several initiatives and the latest regulatory issues related to that waste stream in the Basque Country.
The workshop aroused great interest in the local foundry sector, as evidenced by around 70 participants attending the event. It brought together professionals from ferrous and non ferrous foundries, but also delegates from foundry industry suppliers, construction materials companies, waste management plants and environmental organisations and public bodies.
This is the first of a series of planned workshops to be produced by the LIFE ECO-SANDFILL project.
