30/8/10 – Deadline looms for EU call for proposals for Eco-innovation project
30 August 2010
The European Commission’s eco-innovation call for proposals ends on 9th September 2010. The EU is funding research into sustainable building products specifically construction products and related processes that reduce consumption of resources, embodied carbon and production of by-product wastes. This covers the use of more environmentally friendly construction materials, reduced use of raw material, and innovative manufacturing processes which greatly reduce the environmental impact of construction.
Materials recycling will be a key focus as the EU wants to see the development of better sorting processes and methods for waste materials, construction and demolition waste, commercial/industrial waste, potential recyclables or recyclable waste from electrical and electronic equipment and end-of-life vehicles.
