Working Group  Sustainability, Health and Circular Economy

The aspects of sustainability of fiber reinforced matrices, hybrid technologies and multi-material lightweight construction in building applications as well as the impact of manufacturing and production processes on human health or sustainability will have a great influence on the establishment of new products in the building sector. The protection of life and health must be considered in the short, medium and long term, but this does not exclude sustainability and the conservation of resources. Interested parties from the entire value chain, industry, authorities, public institutions, research and development as well as building owners are addressed.


The main topics of the WG include:

  • Recycling
  • WHO fibers/ health
  • Occupational safety
  • Quality
  • Material cycles, Cradle to Cradle


Our aim is to develop and provide guidelines/knowledge databases etc. for the use of fiber reinforced matrices in the construction industry. This requires close cooperation with other WGs of the CU Bau network. This joint work with other WGs of Composites United e. V. in the fields of automotive, aerospace, ceramics, politics and sustainability generates an added value that is unique worldwide.
