Ashcycle – Integration of Underutilized Ashes into Material Cycles by Industry-Urban Symbiosis

Funding agency: Horizon Europe – Research and Innovation Action
Project identifier: 101058162
Project duration: June 2022 – May 2026

The AshCycle project provides tools for reducing the waste generation from the incineration of municipal solid waste (MSW), biomass, sewage sludge, or combinations of them by developing new utilization possibilities. Overall 29 partners will jointly deploy exemplary pilot solutions of the Industrial-Urban Symbiosis (I-US) concept by demonstrating novel recovery methods for valuable elements from the ashes. Furthermore, the aluminosilicate-rich minerals recovered from the ashes are piloted as a feedstock for companies across value chains to obtain products for construction and wastewater treatment leading to increased resource efficiency and circularity.
