The EGR - EcoGreenRoof research project aims the development of ecological substrates through the selection and use of inorganic and organic based industrial residues for application in green roofs. Formulations will be sought to be tentatively produced exclusively from industrial waste and / or waste treatment materials, either in the inert inorganic part or in the vegetable organic component. The formulations will be developed on a pilot scale, in a facility to be studied, developed and built during the project. The substrates produced will be tested under real conditions by validating them and the inherent production process, as well as obtaining essential data for their commercialization, in the technical, economic and environmental aspects.
