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.

The 5th SCM took place in Preston!

On 17 November 2022, the penultimate COPIL of the CIRCLE project took place in Preston, hosted by partner UCLan.

As the project ends in March 2023, this was an opportunity to take stock of the final stages of the project.

We also had the opportunity to visit the English pilot site and to see its progress.

The last COPIL will take place in Norwich on 1 March 2023.

ESITC Caen becomes BUILDERS School of Civil Engineering

Since October 4th, 2022, ESITC Caen, lead partner of the CIRCLE project, became BUILDERS School of Civil Engineering.

Progress on the Eurovéloroute V4 pilot site

Work on the Eurovéloroute V4 pilot site is progressing well!

As a reminder, within the framework of the CIRCLE project, 1.2 kilometres of the cycle track will be used to implement the method of draining concrete based on cast-in-place shellfish co-products.

This pilot site is supported by the Communauté d’Agglomération des 2 Baies en Montreuillois, a partner in the CIRCLE project.
