Modelling the role of circular economy construction value chains for a carbon-neutral Europe
CO2NSTRUCT is an EU-funded research project that has set out to identify, test, and quantify circular economy impacts for climate mitigation modelling for six key carbon-intensive materials: cement, steel, brick, glass, wood, and insulation materials. We need extensive data on the impacts of the extraction of raw materials, logistics, transformation, and consumer industries covering the whole life cycle of these materials. The project runs from 2022 to 2026 and is funded by the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme.
