As part of a call for projects launched by the Interreg VA France (Channel) England European Territorial Cooperation program, the University of Brighton, together with its French and English partners have been selected to carry out the Sustainable Bio & Waste Resources for Construction (SB&WRC) project. It aims at developing prototypes of construction materials based on bio-resources and recycled waste.

The consortium is composed of academic research laboratories, consultancies, industry stakeholders and construction professional associations. 

Over 27 months, the SB&WRC partners will work to design, produce and test three prototypes of innovative low-carbon thermal insulants made from bio-based and recycled materials. University of Brighton academics Duncan Baker-Brown (soAD), Nick Gant (soAD) and Dr. Ryan Woodard (SET) will source bio-based and textile waste material local to the Brighton area. Prototype insulation panels constructed with this material will be fixed to The Waste House situated on the university’s Grand Parade campus (http://arts.brighton.ac.uk/projects/wastehouse/learn-about-the-waste-house) to be monitored for thermal insulation performance.

The European Union (ERDF) will fund 69% of the project budget, which amounts to 1,8 M€ overall.
