Coming full circle: wood and the circular economy
Woodcircles is a European innovation project to develop circular solutions for sustainable wood construction. The goal is to accelerate the construction sector’s green transition.
The project aims to:
- decrease GHG emissions, waste generation, and materials consumption in European construction through increased circular use of wood materials in buildings.
- create new circular, sustainable value chains for recycled renewable materials.
- harness digital technologies to accelerate adoption of high-volume, high-impact circular solutions for wood in construction.
- improve quality and consumer trust in reused and recycled materials.
The Woodcircles solutions will be demonstrated in three pilot European cities (Rotterdam, Tartu and Turin).
The project is coordinated by the Danish Technological Institute and gathers the expertise of twenty organisations, covering the entire wood value chain.
