Imagine projects or products made of railway waste
The maintenance and replacement of the national railway network create a large quantity of waste: around 110 millions metric ton of ballast, 15 millions metric ton of concrete tiles (55 millions units), 5,5 millions metric ton of rails (approximately 100,000 km), 1.6 million tonnes of wood sleepers (20 million units), more than 27,000 switchgear or 16,000 tonnes of overhead lines!
Design objects (eg street furniture), products (eg building component) or projects (eg building, development) using these materials allowing new uses for the railway group, the construction industry or any other economic sector! These design approaches will be part of a holistic approach to sustainable development, maximizing the recycling or reuse of railway materials and creating environmental, economic and user value. The solution has to be replicable or even producible in the industry or a unique projects with very high added value!
