LIFE: Force of the Future (FORTURE) is a project that began in October 2017, aimed at developing a sustainable manufacturing model for the production of ceramic tiles, with the support of the EU LIFE Programme.
Thanks to this integration it will be possible to have at one’s disposal an eco-design model able to analyse and predict sustainability indices defining alternative design scenarios.
Finally, on the production side, the model will be able to monitor the environmental, social and economic performance of the product, as well as prescribe corrective actions on the ceramic production process in the in case of deviations from the planned sustainability targets.
The project involves the dissemination of the environmental and socio-economic impact assessment model, through institutional associations, to the Italian and Spanish ceramic industry, and the Italian brick sector.
The running of the Project is led by Gruppo Ceramiche Gresmalt in Sassuolo (Modena – Italy) and involves a consortium of 2 other partners: University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy) and Rey Juan Carlos University of Madrid (Spain)
LIFE: Force of the Future, is aimed at achieving the following environmental outcomes:
