In WP4, the engineering of the paving blocks, scaling up focusing on paving block prototype is carried out. It includes also the prototype production in a large scale pilot application. It also includes the quality assessment including the measurement of all the crucial properties for market uptake.

Finally, WP5 includes the techno-economic analysis which will finalize the business plan and the exploitation plan.
