Beach resort recycles spare tiles into climate-resilient drain

The municipality of Benicàssim, on the eastern coast of Spain, is pioneering a sustainable urban drainage system to evacuate torrential rain water from its town centre. Climate change is expected to increase the frequency with which heavy rainfall floods the streets of Mediterranean seaside resorts. As part of the LIFE CERSUDS project, local authorities have been working with the ITC Institute of Ceramic Technology in Castellón, Spain, on a new kind of drainage system that allows water to seep through the ground, rather than build up on the tarmac.
