    More about LIFE CERSUDS

    The LIFE CERSUDS project aims to improve the capacity of cities to adapt to Climate Change and to promote the use of green infrastructures in their urban plans. To this end, a sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) demonstrator has been designed and implemented. This demonstrator consists of a permeable surface whose skin is formed by an innovative system, with low environmental impact, based on the use of ceramic tiles with low commercial value.

    Under the leadership of ITC, bodies such as Benicàssim Town Council, the Institute of Water and Environmental Engineering (IIAMA-UPV), the Bologna Ceramic Centre (CCB), the Ceramic and Glass Technology Centre (CTCV), CHM Obras e Infraestructuras and the company Trencadís de Sempre, S.L. participate.

    The project is financed by the LIFE 2014-2020 Environment and Climate Action Programme of the European Union with reference LIFE15 CCA/ES/000091 and is supported by IVACE of CVA.
