The ECO-Binder project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of replacing Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and OPC based concrete products with new ones based on the new Belite-Ye’elimite-Ferrite (BYF) class of low-CO2 binders. ECO-Binder addresses the vast market for envelope retrofitting and new construction with a new generation of prefabricated building envelope components which will provide a 30% decrease of the carbon footprint, 20% improved insulating properties and a 15% lower cost than the actual solutions based on Portland cement.
Prefabricated concrete systems of different complexity (from ordinary blocks to sophisticated insulated wall panels) and end-use will be installed in different climate conditions (Spain, UK, Romania) for demonstration purposes and their environmental performance will be validated through dedicated Life-cycle assessment (LCAs).
