Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Mineral-based Construction Materials


Challenge 2 – Technological Innovation

Challenge 2 aims to develop the technical understanding for each life cycle stage of MCM and new technologies to reduce their demand, enable their circularity, and create economic value while improving their environmental and social impacts, building on the 4th industrial revolution and the Construction Sector Deal.

Identified opportunities for transformative technological changes will feed back to the scenario modelling in Challenge 1.

This Challenge is led by Professor Leon Black, Professor of Infrastructure Materials, School of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds.
