Press Release: ‘Reverse fridges’ and insulated walls – how to make a house carbon neutral

As the world moves towards a carbon neutral future, many different areas from industry to manufacturing are working to reduce their emissions. But scientists are beginning to look at a different area – houses – to work out if it’s possible to reduce emissions from Europe’s homes to zero by retrofitting on a mass scale. And the early signs are promising.

Press Release: Developing strategies to decarbonise buildings

Policymakers have new tools at their disposal to prepare long-term strategies for the decarbonisation of buildings through energy efficiency renovation. Horizon 2020 projects BUILD UPON and EmBuild supported the design and implementation of renovation strategies across 15 countries in central and south Eastern Europe. Over a third of Europe’s CO2 emissions come from buildings, therefore renovation of inefficient building stocks is a priority if we are to decarbonise by 2050 in line with climate and energy goals.

Event: Sustainable District Energy Conference (Reykjavik, 23-25 October 2019)

Event: The 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Building Materials (Eindhoven, 12-15 August 2019)

The building sector is by far the largest consumer of raw materials and producer of human-made materials. From a sustainability and circularity point of view, the effects of this demand can among others be mitigated using biogenic resources, smart material design, enhanced durability, functionalization, reuse and recycling, and the use of side streams (“waste”). The conference addresses this challenge starting from a scientific approach: building materials science being a syncretic discipline hybridizing mineralogy, ceramics, solid-state physics, chemistry, metallurgy and biology.
