LIFE 5 REFRACT

PROJECT

PURPOSE OF THE LIFE 5 REFRACT PROJECT

The overall purpose of the LIFE 5ReFRACT project is to extend the “4R” approach to a “5R” paradigm (reduce-reuse- remanufacture-recycle-re-educate) and apply it to the steel sector and refractories market, thus achieving an integral valorisation of refractory materials.

PROJECT'S PROGRESS

The project LIFE 5 Refract defines the means and methods to ensure the separation of waste according to its further use.

Specific collection areas are prepared in each point of generation, including deposits for its classification.

This is the previous situation of the refractory waste management. Do not miss the video of the first stages of management that we will post next week.

The project aims at implementing efficient practices for the exploitation of refractory materials and at raising awareness about their use among the European iron and steel sector.

Here you have a video of the first stages of refractory management within the project.
