RE4 project: Build a fully recycled house? Yes, we can!

Join us at the final workshop of the RE4 project.


 Workshop is dedicated to those who are interested in topics such as circular economy, sustainability, energy effciency, reuse of construction demolition waste and innovations in costruction sector.

H2020 research and innovation project called RE4 is pleased to invite industrial companies, researchers, professionals and wide public interested in the topic of circular economy for the public workshop called “Build a fully recycled house? Yes we can!”. Project representatives will introduce their results and lead interactive discussions related to the topic. The end of the workshop will be concluded with the visit to one of RE4 fully prefab, fully reusable demo-buildings (at ACCIONA demo park) with up to 100% of recycled materials from CDW.

 The event will be held in English and also interactively broadcasted.

Workshop registration is free of charge, but it is necessary to be registered as the seats are limited.
