Fungus spores cultivated in waste that can be transformed into insulation, baffle plates, or construction materials. EPS waste from construction and packaging transformed into brand new building materials using robot technology.
These are two of the six innovative solutions which made it to the final of the so-called Circular Construction Challenge – Rethink Waste. The six finalists were announced at the annual Building Green Conference held in Copenhagen at the end of October – see textbox.
The Challenge was initiated by the Danish philanthropic association Realdania, with the ambition of identifying, developing, and scaling new solutions to the massive waste and resource challenges threatening the construction sector today.
