Exhibition shows building material as a recyclable fraction depot
How can building material be reused completely after the building is no longer used so that the waste of resources within the building industry can be reduced? As a part of the EU research project BAMB (Building As Material Banks) the travelling exhibition REM presents possible solutions and recyclable products with certified “material passports”.
The first stop of the exhibition ‘Reversible Experience Modules’ (REM) took place on January 23th, 2018 at the headquarters of Bruxelles Environnement (IBGE) at Brussels. In the course of the BAMB Stakeholder Networking Annual Meetings EPEA Netherlands invited to various workshops and lectures as well as the presentation of the newly developed product database with certified material passports for new- and reconstructions. Among 15 other european companies, research institutes and universities, Lindner takes part in the BAMB.
In an interactive building mock-up, product modules from participating manufacturers, which are already listed as Cradle to Cradle®-building materials in the BAMB database, were arranged. Among these was also the raised floor system NORTEC from Lindner, the first system product for interior fittings which got awarded with the Cradle to Cradle certified™ standard in silver.
The database respectively the material passports create an important base for introducing a sustainable, transparent recycling economy without waste within the real estate industry. All this with healthier buidling materials, whose production and use of raw materials are documented completely and tracable digitally.
Next stop of the exhibition is the Ecobuild in London, which takes place from 6th to 8th of March, 2018. There, Lindner will receive officially the next Cradle to Cradle® certificate for the hollow floor system FLOOR and more®.
