  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The production of flooring materials, in particular ceramic tiles and concrete bricks, has a strong environmental impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, considering the quantity of energy required for the production and the generated air pollution. The energy consumption varies from 1.710 to 2.805 kJ for each kg of tiles or bricks produced, 90% of which comes from the combustion of natural gases; the consumption levels can instead...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION CLIM-RUN Project (2011 – 2014) is aimed mainly at the developing of a communication protocol by which climate information has been transferred from the researchers to the stakeholders in order to develop suitable climate informed decisions. CLIM-RUN Project developed a protocol for applying new methodologies and improved modeling and downscaling tools for the provision of adequate climate information at regional and local scale that is relevant to and usable by...
