Centro Ceramico disseminates REMEB among ceramic tile manufacturers at CERSAIE

As last year, Centro Ceramico has been present in CERSAIE 2017. The Italian ceramic research centre has been disseminating and providing information about the REMEB project, financed by the European Commision’s programme Horizon 2020, to interested ceramic tile manufacturers from 25th to 29th September in Bologna, Italy.

CERSAIE is one of the most relevant fairs for the ceramic sector in the world and gathers leading professionals from multiple profiles. The event accounted for more than 500 ceramic tile manufacturers and 100,000 visitors of which almost the half were international.

The REMEB project, which is validating a sustainable system for wastewater treatment, a ceramic membrane bioreactor, is using ceramic wastes for manufacturing the membranes. These membranes are being produced at an industrial scale in a ceramic tile manufacturing company in Castellón, Spain. The manufacturing of this product could imply the ceramic tile manufacturers’ business diversification while giving a second life to their wastes.
