NEWS > Cleanleach System Uses Recycled Gravel

The Project aims to reduce the environmental impact in plant production

One of the constructed wetlands in the Cleanleach pilot plant in IRTA Cabrils started using gravel made out of Construction and Demoliton (C&D) debris. Up to now, the recycled substrate, which has a quality certificate from the European Union, has the same denitrification rates as the common gravel used before.

The Cleanleach project is co-funded by the eco-innovation initiative from the European Commission. Its aim is to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly system, therefore the C&D debris gravel is the most suitable option.

For the test son the pilot plant, the material was provided by the company Tecnocatalana de Runes S.L.
