The objective of the CIRCLE project is to develop a draining cast-in-place concrete pavement based on shellfish co-products, with low environmental impact and significant drainage properties. In addition, the addition of shellfish co-products by substituting natural aggregates reduces and preserves non-renewable natural constituents.

Today, in the face of climate change, combined with the growing increase in soil urbanization, Europe is regularly faced with flooding episodes with major human, environmental and financial consequences. Drainage of road structures is therefore an obvious solution to combat this devastating phenomenon.

The CIRCLE project has been selected within the framework of the European Cross-border Cooperation Programme INTERREG VA France (Channel) England co-financed by the ERDF and brings together 6 French and British partners.

Event of the 21st of June 2022

On Tuesday 21th of June 2022, the CIRCLE project event took place in Conchil-Le-Temple (FR).

Organised by and at EQIOM, A CRH Company, this event was an opportunity to present and highlight the CIRCLE project to an audience of elected officials, community representatives and industrialists….

The program included a visit to the concrete plant of EQIOM, A CRH Company, with an explanation of the washing and crushing of the shells, followed by a visit to the pilot site of the Eurovéloroute V4 by CA2BM with a demonstration of the draining quality of CIRCLE concrete.

This day was a real moment of exchange between the partners of the CIRCLE project finally together and the visitors invited to the event.

Thank you to EQIOM, A CRH Company and CA2BM for the organisation and to everyone for your participation !
