TNO has extensive knowledge of the environmental effects of building materials. We are working on increasing the circularity of building materials with a focus on making concrete more sustainable as well as developing circular innovations for brick, gypsum and wood. Examples of such innovations are the development of cold-baked bricks and the reuse of wooden doors.
