IN POWER

The benefits of high efficiency concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) are well known: environmental protection, economic growth, job creation, energy security. Those technologies can only be applied properly in regions with annual mean radiation values higher than 1750 kWh/m2 per year. CSP has advantages in front of PV: possible 24h continuous electricity production,… Read More »

Pre-fabricated elements through the reuse and recycling of construction materials and structures

The Green INSTRUCT project develops Green Integrated Structural Elements for Retrofitting and New Construction of Buildings. Click here to download the leaflet.   The rapid growth of the construction industry worldwide during the past decades has resulted in an enormous increase of the produced Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) quantities globally. This requires the industry… Read More »

Green INSTRUCT

The Green INSTRUCT project will develop a prefabricated modular structural building block that is superior to conventional precast reinforced concrete panels by virtue of its reduced weight, improved acoustic and thermal performance and multiple functionalities. The Green INSTRUCT block consists of over 70% of CDW in weight. The Green INSTRUCT project will: achieve sustainability and… Read More »
