A research and consultancy organisation

We apply our expertise within circular economic modelling, resource efficiency, environmental policies, Life Cycle Cost (LCC) assessment, sustainable business models and market exploitation strategies in projects supporting the transition to a circular and sustainable economy.





The URBAN TREE increases the greenery in the city.

The URBAN TREE can be placed in public spaces where the ground is not suitable to plant a real tree.

The URBAN TREE encourages social meetups and heightens mental health.

  • Low installation & maintenance costs compared to current greening products
  • Short CO2 payback time through circular life cycle of materials
  • Inclusive design with high degree of user engagement
  • Stores rainwater and acts as a flash flooding buffer
  • Self-standing structure which can be placed both on the side of roads and in open spaces

EU Projects




CURE synergistically exploits the Copernicus Core Services and develops an umbrella cross-cutting application for urban resilience in DIAS (Data and Information Access Services), consisting of individual cross-cutting applications for climate change adaptation/mitigation, energy and economy, as well as healthy cities and social environments, at several European cities.


NVE Interreg project


By-products for sustainable concrete in the urban environment

URBCON will reduce the high primary raw material consumption and CO2 emissions, that result from the construction and maintenance of the urban built environment (e.g. buildings, pavements, sewer pipes, bridges). The focus is on concrete, being the most used building material. The overall objective is to apply by-products as alternative raw materials for concrete.

Activity 1: Sustain URBCON technology

Activity 2: Sustain the SRM Market Platform

Activity 3. Quantify environmental and economic viability

Activity 4: Roadmap for roll-out of URBCON concept


Marie Curie Innovative Training Network


PhD framework creating a critical mass of experts skilled in innovative alkali-activated material (AAM).

The aim of DuRSAAM is to strengthen the European research area on eco-efficient construction materials and the increased competitiveness of Europe’s construction sector, in applying concrete technology based on alkali-activated materials (AAM) for a more sustainable built environment.




Mineral wool waste back to loop with advanced sorting, pretreatment and alkali activation.

The WOOL2LOOP project aims to close this material loop by introducing novel technology and value chain to CDW sorting, pretreatment, and processing.

The quality of sorted mineral wool is upgraded by comparing and combining the following approaches: pre-demolition audit, robotized demolition and sorting, novel on-site analysis with timegated Raman spectroscopy, and smart demolition practices.




Advanced material solutions towards high efficiency solar energy harvesting.

NewSol develops advanced materials solutions based on innovative storage media and concepts for Thermal Energy Storage (TES) for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP).


FP7 project


Use of eco-friendly materials for a new concept of asphalt pavements for sustainable environments.

To demonstrate and validate an eco-innovative design of asphalt pavements based on the integration of more sustainable materials into its production cycle.

This goal will be achieved by working on two asphalt mixtures’ main components, binders and aggregates. On the binder side, the aim is to replace almost the 100% of the bitumen by greener materials from renewable raw sources, e.g. vegetable oils, by-products of bioethanol production.

On the aggregates’ side, efforts will be made on the valorization of Construction and Demolition Waste and in the use of reclaimed asphalt for asphalt mixtures.


FP7 project


City services using satellite data

  1. Urban Climate Atlas service assessing urban climate change impacts
  2. Land monitoring service providing land consumption information and urban ecosystems assessment tools
  3. City Energy Efficiency assessing energy consumption and improve energy efficiency in cities
  4. Citizen Health tools to alert the population to health risks arising from poor air quality and excessive temperatures in the urban area
  5. Population impact assessment analysing the impact of climate change scenarios to the population
