REDOL Project will directly impact in the transition of Zaragoza towards a zero residues city, aiming at achieving this objective by 2040.
Taking into account that the current recycling rate is around 50%, this would imply over 140,000 tons/year being re-used, valorised or transformed into secondary raw materials instead of landfilled.
Such an approach will result in a total of 144.720 tons/year being re-used, valorised or transformed into secondary raw materials instead of landfilled (over 90.000 tons in the value chains addressed in the REDOL Project).
It must be considered that potential increments in the number of residues generated within the city would further increase this impact, as residues generation is currently increasing by 2% per year, but efforts are placed in achieving a reduction in these figures.
Accordingly, REDOL innovations at technical, economical, managerial and social level will enable the consolidation of Zaragoza’s hub for circularity and leverage benefits within the city of over 14 B€ and 280 ktCO2/year, economic and GHG emissions savings respectively.
