Study for the economic, commercial and environmental enhancement of excavated materials resulting from the Lyon- Turin new railway link construction site

Implementing partner: Province of Turin

Geographical area: Piedmont Region (Italy)

Aim of the Pilot Action
The pilot action focuses on the need to identify a methodology for the correct definition of the economic value “ex yard” of the different lithological classes:

  • CL1 (excavated material that is valued as aggregate for concrete);
  • CL2 (excavated material that is valued as a material for detected);
  • CL3a (excavated material that is used for environmental restoration measures).

The identification of such economic value allows to define the correct price to be included in regional price catalogue (the catalogue contains the reference prices for public works in the Piedmont Region) in order to stimulate the use of alternative materials compared to similar raw materials from the quarry.

Achievements/Results
The Pilot Action provides the definition of qualitative and quantitative analysis of the extracted material and its flow account from each identified production site.
The Pilot Action also develops a methodology for calculating the value of the of the different lithological excavated material “ex yard.”
Finally a questionnaire is submitted to the sector operators and trade associations to define and investigate the variables that constrain or restrict the activation of a market for excavated materials (for example: distances, transportation costs, short to medium term scenarios related to the execution of works and infrastructure on the territory).

Outputs
The main output of this Pilot action is the “Study for the economic, commercial and environmental enhancement of excavated materials resulting from the Lyon-Turin new railway link construction site”.
The output is intended primarily for policy makers (Region, Province) and the enterprises involved, directly or indirectly, in the construction of the Lyon-Turin new railway link.
