Expected Outcomes 

BIOBUILD contributes to advancing environmental sustainability, aligning with climate targets and zero pollution objectives, through the implementation of life cycle assessment (LCA) methodologies for bio-based materials and products in building applications.

By utilising LCA approaches, the project enhances the understanding of the environmental impact of bio-based materials, facilitating their intensified and sustainable use within initiatives such as the New European Bauhaus Initiative (NEB) and the Renovation Wave (RW). This supports the overarching goals of promoting sustainable construction practices and reducing the environmental footprint of buildings, in line with European Union initiatives aimed at fostering innovation and sustainability in the building environment.

BIOBUILD further aims to enhance the competitiveness of the European industry and SME sector by engaging various stakeholders across bio-based value chains. Through this collaboration, the project seeks to ensure the development of affordable and sustainable end-products that meet the needs of both consumers and society. Additionally, BIOBUILD emphasizes the integration of digital solutions, leveraging technology to optimise processes to enhance the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the bio-based construction sector.
