About UUMA2 Programme

Natural rock materials to be used in groundworks can be replaced with recovered materials acquired from surplus ground, industrial by-products and waste, mildly contaminated ground and materials from old groundworks. These materials are called UUMA materials. They can be used in groundworks such as they are or as components to replace untouched rock material or to improve their properties. 

The goal of the UUMA2 programme is to promote the use of recovered materials in groundworks and thus decrease the use of untouched natural resources and the environmental effects of groundworks.
