Develop and promote Eco Construction Materials
The CAP’EM (Cycle Assessment Procedure for Eco-impacts of Materials) Project is a North-West European programme drawing together the expertise of 11 partner organisations to improve the production, distribution and use of eco-materials.
The objectives of this project are to:
- Develop a shared methodology for the life cycle analysis of the environmental and health impacts of construction materials.
- Evaluate 100 building materials according to this new methodology, and enable users to classify them according to multiple criteria.
- Increase the use and knowledge of eco-materials in North-West Europe by engaging with the building industry.
- Demonstrate the use of eco-materials in new build and renovation contexts, via a network of exhibition centres.
