The LIFE project six European flagship ferrous foundries will implement at industrial scale the inorganic binder system on their production process implying major changes, starting with selection of the suitable inorganic binder system, changes in processes and investments in new equipment. In parallel different sand reclamation methods will be demonstrated. Based on the results obtained, the foreseen techniques will present an outstanding knowledge for BAT technologies participating to tackle environmental problems and to produce greener products to European market.

Green Casting LIFE project aims to demonstrate the technical and environmental feasibility of using inorganic binders, instead of traditional organic ones, in ferrous foundries.
