Grow2Build Project

  • Beginning of 2013, the Interreg IVB project ‘Grow2Build’ took off.
  • This project is about the promotion of flax and hemp in building materials in NWE (partners in the Netherlands, Belgium –Flanders and Wallonia-, UK, France, Germany).
  • It tackles problems, solutions and networking in the agricultural and basic processing sector, production possibilities, scientific research and the creation of a ‘centre of excellence’ at Brunel University (London), educational tools for the building sector and the general public, and technical and environmental information on flax and hemp building materials.
  • In this project, CAP’EM partner VIBE plays an important role.
  • They will, amongst other tasks, use the CAP’EM method to make LCA-calculations on the envisaged (actual and future) building products.
  • The project partners will also try to get possible new building products in the existing CAP’EM demonstration centres.
  • This project thus contributes to the further use of the CAP’EM method and partnership.
