ACCIONA CONSTTUCTION, partner in Bizente project, is a Spanish construction company present in over 30 countries through its different divisions and with a turnover of over 3 billion euros and around 11,300 employees.
ACCIONA covers the whole range of construction, from engineering to the performance of works and their later maintenance, and the management of public works concessions, particularly in the field of transport and social infrastructures. The organization has three specialized business units: 1) Roads and bridges; 2) Railways and tunnels; and 3) Special projects (mainly maritime and offshore). And it is actively committed to R&D&I, focusing on the reduction of the environmental impact of its activities wherever it operates.
Within the BIZENTE project, ACCIONA will study the validation of modified resins and byproducts obtained after chemical biodegradation of composite materials for the development of new composites used in the construction sector. In the future, the company will thus be able to transform waste from different composite structures into high value products, as well as contribute to the degradation of thermoset plastics for internal valorization and, eventually, become a relevant actor in the circular economy
