Breaking legal barriers for zero-emissions buildings
Discover the European procedure for placing innovative construction products on the market under the MEZeroE project! Aneta Nowak-Michta, Ph.D in Engineering at Cracow University of Technology, member of the MEZeroE consortium, will present her article "Placing on the Market Modern Construction Products and Systems Contributing to Next Generation of Healthy, Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings" at the 10th MATBUD’2023 Scientific-Technical Conference “Building Materials Engineering and Innovative Sustainable Materials”, Cracow, Poland, 19–21 April 2023.
In Europe, the construction sector generates more than a third of CO2 emissions, and residential buildings consume about 40% of the energy produced. The MEZeroE project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020, aims to create a platform that simplifies the development of nearly zero-energy buildings by combining science and business. This is especially important as innovative solutions exist for building zero-emission and zero-energy buildings, but legal barriers prevent their widespread adoption.
