Lifeceram in Cersaie 2015
The LIFECERAM project, framed in the Programme LIFE + and funded by the European Community has released its latest advances in the trade fair CERSAIE 2015, held from September 28 to October 2 in Bologna (Italy), one of the two meeting points of international reference for the ceramic industry worldwide ( the other is CEVISAMA, held every year in Valencia in early February ) .
LIFECERAM, whose foremost aim is to achieve zero waste in the process of ceramic tile manufacturing, has previously obtained the first samples manufactured from waste generated in the ceramic manufacturing process itself, which truly represents a substantial advance in the project.
On the occasion of CERSAIE 2015, researchers from the staff of the Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC), the entity coordinator of the project, traveled to Italy to visit this essential appointment for the international ceramic industry. In addition, the company Vernis, SA, one of the LIFECERAM participants, spread from their stand the advances and progress of the project during the days of celebration of this massive event, attended by 101,000 professionals on 2015 according to the latest data from the organization; of these, 48,235, came from foreign countries, 3.5% more than in the 2014 edition.
Specifically, the Spanish participation in this event was of great importance, there were 91 Spanish tile manufacturers companies that attended, of the more than 100 that exist in the Spanish cluster. Thus, as collected several sources, the trade fair Cersaie is better able to attract international visitors, being the major from the European Union.
Lifeceram, coordinated by ITC and involving the National Association of Manufacturers of Ceramic Tiles ( ASCER ) and the companies Vernis , SA , KEROS CERAMIC, SL, and CHUMILLAS & TARONGI , SL, is developing with funding from the European Commission through the European LIFE + Environment Policy and Governance.
