Sustainable innovations in lime applications
As one of the oldest building materials, lime still plays an essential role in constructions, and its global market is on the rise. The EU-funded SUBLime project will develop the most advanced technology in lime-based materials modelling and description for industrial use that will surpass existing solutions in the new construction and conservation sectors. The project will train 15 PhD students in multiple scientific and engineering fields. It will assist them to better understand sustainable innovations in both added functionalities and sustainability features in lime mortars and plaster, firmly based on innovative biomimetic and closed-loop recycling methods. The cross-disciplinary method applied by SUBLime will improve the scientific knowledge of the academic and industrial members of the EU's lime sector.
