Mirca Di Domenico, Sustainability Consultant and Andrea Morfino, Sustainability Engineer at thinkstep Italy will present at the ISDRS 2018 conference an LCA study and the application of the GaBi Circularity Tool, assessing the production of an innovative “green” ceramic tile. This very innovative ceramics product developed by our client Marazzi Group and Centro Ceramico of Bologna, contains over 70% of waste out of the End of Life phase of ceramic products. The presented study forms part of a European project, WINCER: a “circular’ ceramic tile “.

>> More Information on the project

The LCA study performed by thinkstep provides interesting insights to better understand the environmental performance of this innovative technology and gives evidence that the methodology of Life Cycle Assessment and the calculation of the Material Circuality Indicator (MCI)  can definitely help to explore and identify opportunities in circular product re-design and development.
