Reuse and Recycling of construction and demolition waste
Innovative prefabricated elements with high degree of recycled materials
Reuse structures from demolished buildings
Minimize environmental impacts in construction industry
Develop a RE4-prefabricated energy-efficient building concept
Developing of prefabricated components that can be easily assembled and
Disassembled for future reuse

REuse and REcycling of CDW materials and structures in energy efficient pREfabricated elements for building REfurbishment and construction

RE4 is a collaborative research project of 13 partner institutions from science and industry funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The main purpose of project is to develop a RE4 prefabricated energy-efficient building concept that can be easily assembled and disassembled for future reuse, containing up to 65% in weight of recycled materials from CDW (ranging from 50% for the medium replacement of the mineral fraction, up to 65%). The reusable structures will range from 15-20% for existing buildings to 80-90% for the RE4 prefabricated building concept.


09.07.2018 | Chinese delegation in CETMA's premises

On 5th July 2018, a Chinese delegation composed of representatives of the Industrial Association of Shanghai, entrepreneurs and journalists, visiting the Apulia region for a prospecting business travel, made a stop at CETMA’s premises. The DCE Area had the opportunity to present to visitors the goals, activities and main obtained results of RE4 project in its first 18-month period. Although China is one of the most advanced countries in the thematic areas covered by RE4, the visitors have been very impressed by team capacities and project ambition. We hope that this first handshake can be an opportunity for future collaborations.
