27 Ene Second monitoring meeting of the VALURUBBER project
The second monitoring meeting of the VALURUBBER project
The second monitoring meeting of the VALURUBBER project took place on January 23, 2020. The VALUERUBBER project is funded by the Fast Track to Innovation section (H2020-EIC-FTI-2018-2020) of the Horizon 2020 research program of the European Union.
The consortium partners are working together to successfully develop DevulCore, an innovative rubber recycling technology obtained to the tires of the automobile industry, which achieves the complete devulcanization of rubber. The product obtained is a devulcanized rubber, Value-Rubber, with a maximized potential to be used as a complete substitute for virgin rubbers in electronic manufacturing processes.
The project is currently finalizing the specification and design phases to be able to measure the construction and commissioning of the tire rubber devulcanization technology shortly. The meeting took place at the facilities of Synthelast in Elche, Alicante. Participants visited the company and checked «in situ» the capabilities of Synthelast in relation to the project.
