The Belgian Building Research Institute (BBRI) constructed a demonstration-building
on the site of its experimental station in Limelette.
Recyhouse is a building incorporating a very large amount of new construction
materials produced with residues of all sorts. The objective is to demonstrate
that it is indeed possible to construct a building almost entirely with
the means of recycled materials.
The main goal of Recyhouse is to inform all those associated with the
building process about the possible applications of recycled products.
Recyhouse, which required five years of work (1996-2001), benefited from
the support of the European Commission, within the framework of the financial
instrument "Life" (DG Environnement)
