Summary

The ECO-PCCM project introduced a new class of eco-friendly and cost-effective polymer composite construction material. The project addresses the combination of European and Balkan scientific and engineering expertise in natural fibre composites, innovative house-component design and construction of low cost – low energy building composites and waste-recycling processes to develop a new generation of housing systems that are environmentally friendly, economically viable and socially desirable. For the development and production of eco-friendly composite products, computer aided material design approach will be applied.
