Innovative circular solutions and services for the housing sector
At EU level, the housing sector is responsible for 9% of GDP, but it also uses 50% of the extracted materials, 40% and 30% of available energy and water respectively, aside from causing 30% of total waste and 35% of green-house gas emissions. No doubt that actions like HOUSEFUL are needed.
HOUSEFUL will pursue its objectives by designing innovative interventions for efficient management of materials, waste, water and energy along the entire housing value chain. This will be done by demonstrating the feasibility of an integrated systemic service composed of 11 circular solutions, which will be demonstrated in four different buildings located in Vienna and nearby Barcelona.
