Sustainable construction products and materials for renovation is one of two projects the Nordic Innovation Centre funds within the ERA-Net Eracobuild. Eracobuild is a network of national R&D programmes focusing on construction and sustainable built environments and aims to develop synergies between national programmes by sharing strategies and establishing joint programmes and projects.

 

Sustainable construction products and materials for renovation
A majority of the construction products does not pose a risk to the human health or the environment since their content or release of dangerous substances are low or negligible. However, manufactures need to verify the low risk from a life cycle perspective and to document the low release to other stakeholders. Therefore there is a need for guidelines for the evaluation of actual risks linked with dangerous substances and for interpretation of results. According to CPD/CPR, products posing low risk may be classified as Without (Further) Testing which will reduce the future burden of testing.

 

This project aims to develop and thereby to support the use of safe and sustainable construction products and materials in renovation. It provides a methodology and tools for assessment of environmental properties and sustainability aspects of construction products.
