New building products through the partial replacement of virgin raw materials

HISER partners are going to develop and optimize new cost-effective building products through the partial replacement of virgin raw materials by higher amounts of secondary high-purity raw materials recovered from complex C&DW.

The most common building products will be considered for the achievement of this global objective:

  1. lower (up to 10% in comparison with the current patented solutions) CO2 footprint and cost-effective cements;

  2. new cost effective green concrete containing more than 1300 kg of recycled aggregates per cubic meter of new concrete;

  3. new cost effective bricks manufactured with a partial replacement (up to 10% (by weight) of inert sand fraction by C&D recovered ceramic material ('brick-to-brick');

  4. new cost effective VOC-absorbing plasterboards, fire resistant gypsum plasters and plasterboard composite panels manufactured with partial replacements (up to 50%) of natural gypsum and fibers by C&D recovered gypsum, wood fibers and filler from mineral wool;

  5. new low cost extruded composite structural products by incorporating up to 60% of C&D recovered wood fibers, mineral wool and other recycled materials.

The project has received funding from the European Union's  Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 642085.
