Tecnalia

Involvement in the project

TECNALIA leads WP2 (Design of the novel circular economy models for the pilot cases) with the objective of providing a novel approach for encompassing the development of new business opportunities in pulp and paper industry (PPI). The main aim is to foster a higher recovery of material resources contained in pulp and paper production through Industrial Symbiosis paradigms taking as a baseline the four application cases: the construction manufacturing, transport infrastructure, mining and chemical sector. TECNALIA is also participating in WP4 (Real scale demonstration of the circular value chain) and WP6 (Enabling market uptake: product certification and circular economy guidelines), giving support to laboratory test and certification process.
TECNALIA is the leading private and independent research and technology organisation in Spain and one of the largest in Europe, employing 1,319 people (198 PhDs) and income around 105 million € in 2015.

TECNALIA is committed to generate major impacts in economic terms, by means of innovation and technological development, addressed by 7 business divisions, covering economic sectors of Construction, Energy, Industry,Transportation, Health and ICT. TECNALIA has been granted over 250 patents and promoted more than 30 spin-off companies.

TECNALIA was very active in FP7, participating in 377 projects and coordinating 81 of them. Within the ongoing Horizon 2020 Programme, TECNALIA is participating in 88 projects, coordinating 15 of them.

TECNALIA is a member of EARTO and of EUROTECH, linking together the most important research centers in Europe. TECNALIA is a key agent in the ERA – European Research Area, holding position 11th among RECs and 23rd overall in “Seventh FP7 Monitoring Report”.

Innovative business models: due to previous experience of the TECNALIA’s team in developing an ecosystem for service based innovation in the manufacturing sector (MSE-Manufacturing service ecosystem) as well as in deploying a methodology for new business models generation tailored to construction and retrofitting industries (NewBEE methodology), in PAPERCHAIN TECNALIA will orchestrate the process for identifying and generating innovative business models that foster the best transition towards effective circular economy models in PPI.

In the field of recycling and recovery of waste materials, the SCD of TECNALIA provides its knowledge and experience concerning: valorisation of waste materials in civil works including previous experience in real scale demonstration of the use of by-products from the paper industry in soil stabilization, development and testing of building materials manufactured with recycled waste materials and industrial by products and environmental and health-safety assessment of waste materials to be used in both building and civil works.
