LIFE-REPOLYUSE addresses the problem of the management of plastic waste, such as polyurethane, through the use of innovative techniques of reduction and reuse, integrating them into new construction materials, in order to prolong their useful life.
The development of this project follows the main objectives of the European Union in order to reduce the effects of climate change on human beings. LIFE-REPOLYUSE tries to solve the environmental problem relating to the efficiency of resources and waste, seeking the implementation of European policies on the environment and climate.
The material that defines LIFE-REPOLYUSE is a prefabricated plaster in the form of a plate. It is formed by plaster and polyurethane residue in combination with specific additives whose initial matrix has already been tested under the service regime.
