The topic is very hot and is widely discussed in the issue 186/21 of CIL – Costruire in Laterizio in the piece "The evolution of the digitization of building materials in BIM. Bricks as a case study", by B. Mazzanti (Centro Ceramico) and S. Sorbelli. It describes the implementation of [...]
Giuliana Bonvicini explains what are, in the framework of the Project MImeSIS, the development lines of Phase 3, of which Centro Ceramico is responsible. They can basically be traced back to two main strands: the first concerns the formulation of new "green" geopolymer mortars that use recycled materials from different [...]
On July 5th, 2021, the technical meeting of the Project LIFE SUPERHERO, of which Centro Ceramico is the coordinator. The consortium met to take stock of the work carried out in the first year of the project and plan the next activities. The partners are ready to assemble the instrumentation [...]
Experience and expertise on Enterprises’ service
Centro Ceramico is a research and experimentation centre for the ceramic industry, established in 1976 and managed by a University Consortium composed of:
It carries out its activity on two headquarters: Bologna and Sassuolo, the latter operating since 2000 in the heart of the Ceramic District.
The laboratories in Bologna are accredited by Accredia (no. 0058) in compliance with the Standard UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025.
Accreditation ensures that the test and inspection reports, as well as the certifications (system, product and personnel) bearing the Accredia logo, are issued in compliance with the most rigorous international requirements for conformity assessment and behind a constant and strict surveillance action on the behavior of the responsible operators (Laboratories and Bodies).
Centro Ceramico is also accredited as Industrial Research Laboratory of the Emilia Romagna High Technology Network: for Companies, this translates into knowledge, instruments and resources for product and process innovation.
Research and Innovation
Today, research cannot ignore the essential concepts of sustainability and resilience or adaptability.
These are therefore the keywords that respond to the needs induced by the “New-Normal” of the post-COVID era and that guide all the topics of industrial interest in the lines of research of Centro Ceramico:
“Ceramic Process“, “Ceramic Materials” and “Building: Digitization and Installation Systems“.
The researchers of Centro Ceramico are “adaptable”, flexible professionals, able to respond to multiple needs and requests, capable to work in synergy
to create ever new and innovative solutions in collaboration with their Customers.
The lines of research carried out by Centro Ceramico meet the requirements of the ONU 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, they fall into the following Goals:
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science“
