C2CA Technology was formed in 2016 between GBN Group and TU Delft, and emerged from an European research project. Their mission is to establish a completely closed concrete loop, recycling 100% of end-of-life concrete into high-quality circular raw materials. Given the environmental impact of concrete – it’s the most widely used raw material globally, contributing to 8% of total global CO2 emissions – C2CA’s work is vital. The majority of these emissions stem from cement production. C2CA Technology’s development of concrete recycling technology is a significant contribution towards reducing both the overconsumption of natural, primary raw materials and CO2 emissions.
To know everything about the concrete that they handle, they want do develop a comprehensive material passport concept using RFID technology. This provides quality information throughout the lifecycle of the material, and enables access to this data for different parties. As a designer, you will define the user requirements for this material passport, based on market research and expectations of stakeholders, which are identified by interviews. You will assist de database developer in the development of a user interface, and setting up data management protocols. Lastly, you will develop a monetisation strategy for C2CA Technology.
