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)
