The PaperChain project, coordinated by ACCIONA Construction, carries out its first case study in Zaragoza

by ACCIONA Construction

The European project, included in the H2020 programme, seeks to recover waste from the paper and pulp industry for reuse in the construction, mining and chemical sectors

With the slogan “New market niches for paper and pulp industry waste based on circular economy approaches”, PaperChain will deploy five novel circular economy models focussed on the recovery of waste generated by the paper and pulp industry as secondary raw material in resource-intensive sectors.

The project, coordinated by ACCIONA Construction, has a budget of €7.8 million financed by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. Twenty partners are participating from five European countries, with a network of collaborators that include the town councils of Villamayor de Gállego, Ejea de los Caballeros, El Burgo de Ebro and the regional government of Aragon’s department of mobility.
