Sustainability in Spanish tile production: the LIFE Foundrytile project

Ceramic tile is inherently one of the most sustainable building products available. Created from natural clay, it is transformed into a high-performance, easy-to-maintain material. Plus, Tile of Spain manufacturers are consistently on the forefront of technical and sustainable design. Now they are taking that sustainability knowledge and further applying it to manufacturing through the LIFE Foundrytile project.


The main objective of the LIFE Foundrytile project is to repurpose the fine fraction and sands of iron smelting for the production of ceramic tiles. The study arises from the coincidence between the quantities generated from this type of by-products and their composition with the different raw materials used in ceramic production.… Continue Reading
