The SB&WRC project is supported by the European program Interreg VA France (Channel) England and receives financial support from the ERDF.

The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) is pleased to commence the Sustainable Bio and Waste Resources for Construction (SB&WRC) project which aims to develop prototype construction materials from bio-resources and recycled waste.

The ASBP is a cross sector, non-profit organisation which brings together product manufacturers, distributors, specifiers, designers, contractors, sustainability organisations, academics and other building practitioners. Its mission is to accelerate the transition to a performant, healthy and low carbon built environment, by championing the increased understanding and use of sustainable building products. This will assist in delivering healthy, low carbon buildings, as well as sustainable economic and social development, while highlighting the relationship between people, buildings and nature.

The ASBP acts as a knowledge exchange platform, with monthly newsletters and regular popular events regarding the topics of health and wellbeing, the circular economy, responsible sourcing and product innovation. The ASBP has 50+ members including Wienerberger, Architype and STEICO; smaller manufacturers such as Adaptavate, Econovate, and Straw Works; and partnerships with leading academic institutions such as University College London, University of Bath and University of Cambridge.

For the SB&WRC project, the ASBP will be co-leader for communication, ensuring effective communication about the project through knowledge-sharing seminars, newsletters and press releases. The ASBP will also share its knowledge and expertise of the construction sector for the design of the prototypes, with the Executive Chair of the ASBP, Gary Newman, having 20 years of experience in developing new bio-based products.

The ASBP is looking forward to working with its French and English partners during the project and will keep you updated with all the exciting developments along the way!
