IMPACTS

Expected impacts

• CO2 savings (by min. 30 %), energy savings (by min 20%), and higher resource efficiency (minimum share of recycled materials in final product of at least 10-15%) will ultimately contribute to a resource-efficient and climate change resilient economy

• Creation of new value chains by expanding the size and attractiveness of C&DW recycling and reuse for energy efficient buildings construction and refurbishment, properly tackling non-technological barriers

• High replication potential of the solutions obtained, with the possibility to export EU technology worldwide

• Contribution to achieving the objectives of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials, in particular to the relevant impacts shown in Action I.5 "Recycling of raw materials from products, buildings and infrastructure" of the Strategic Implementation Plan

• Contribution with viable technologies that have the potential to significantly change practices of the construction industry towards circular economy practices

• Improvement of innovation capacity of the construction sector to stimulate new growth and jobs creation
