The result of the project will be innovative building materials (coatings, plasters and post-treated ceramic materials) with high added value, which provide cost-effective solutions for the building and construction sector and a strong reduction of the environmental impact and health related problems. Various demonstrators (e.g. walls with coatings, plasters and post-treated ceramic materials) will be available. Furthermore, more know-how will be available, including methods (models) and setups to test products for their bio-effectiveness.

Background Info

  • Ten percent of homeowners believe that mould is an issue in their neighbourhoods while 35 percent of home builders and 19 percent of real estate agents believe that this is an issue in the homes they build/sell.
  • A total of 11% of the entire global burden of disease has been attributed to unhealthy buildings.
  • Coatings in the built environment usually exhibit biocidal functionality between 0.5 and 2 years, whereas the desired service life in building practice is at least 10 years.
