Project Objectives

The “Development of an innovative insulation fire resistant façade from the Construction and Demolition Waste” (DEFEAT) project rises in an attempt to tackle the aforementioned issues.  DEFEAT (INTEGRATED/0918/0052) was co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research & Innovation Foundation and it envisions to develop a pilot scale of an innovative separation method for CDW, develop a composite material also generated from CDW that will be characterized by low thermal conductivity, satisfactory mechanical properties, and fire resistance properties. The produced material will be able to be applied as a façade, either on existing or new construction projects.
