In mid 2015, CIDAUT started the LIFE-SOUNDLESS project (New Generation of eco-friendly asphalts with recycled materials and high durability and acoustic performance). CIDAUT is member of LIFE-SOUNDLESS project together with the Consejería de Fomento de la Junta de Andalucía (coordinating beneficiary) and Eiffage Infraestructuras (associated beneficiary).

The LIFE-SOUNDLESS project aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative noise reducing asphalt mixes (SMA-like thin layer), using waste products from other industries, to mitigate acoustic contamination at the point of origin, while ensuring their durability, and ultimately to encourage public
