RE4 logoThe RE4 project – REuse and REcycling of Construction and Deconstruction Waste (CDW), materials and structures in energy efficient pREfabricated elements for building REfurbishment and construction – is an European project aiming at the development of a fully prefabricated energy-efficient building bade of components containing up to 65% by weight of CDW-derived materials and structures.

The project is currently co-financed by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.

Highlights

Over the last months, the project focused on testing products and processes ensuring both easy installation and dismantling in the construction sector manufactured with significant percentages of Construction and Demolition Waste derived aggregates, using materials sorted by other RE4 partners.

The project received a recognition award at the Deutscher Holzbaupreis 2019 highlighting timber façade panels, testing an innovative internal partition wall system. and  the design concept for fully reversible, prefabricated, multi-story residential buildings constructed from waste wood is described in a scientific paper, titled “Strategies for circular, prefab buildings from waste wood”, realised by “Earth and Environmental Science” Journal.
