In April, COGERSA started a geotechnical survey to determine the characteristics of the ground of the demo-site in Asturias, a surrounding area of the landfill that was prepared in 2020 with recovered aggregates of construction and demolition waste. Both, a heavyweight penetrometer and a drilling machine are involved in this study to measure the perforation resistance and to take soil samples for subsequent analyses. These results will help the engineers to design the most convenient foundation to support the heavy equipment of the LIFE INFUSION pilot. Once the geotechnical survey and the construction project has finished in the coming months, the next steps will be the application for permits as well as the public tenders for the civil works and the transportation of the equipment from Ecoparc 2 to COGERSA’s facilities in 2023.
