This work line covers all actions aimed at reduce the environmental impact of activities related to the construction sector, also considering the economic and social aspects, and covering the complete life cycle of the building, from the optimization of production processes to the reduction of energy consumption and raw materials, to the valorization of construction and demolition waste to incorporate them back into the life cycle of the building.

The work carried out in this line focuses on improving the energy efficiency of buildings, sustainable rehabilitation, improving the acoustic insulation of buildings and construction systems, developing innovative building solutions, and the environmental efficiency of building processes and the recovery of construction waste and other industries as raw material for the manufacture of optimized construction materials.
