On 23 February 2015, the ECO-SEE exploitation lead partners came together to shape potential exploitation routes for a range of innovative eco-building materials addressing both indoor air quality as well as radical improvements in energy efficiency. ECO-SEE should deliver products with at least 15 % lower embodied energy, 20% longer expected lifespan and 20% lower build costs than traditional construction materials.
Greenovate! Europe exploitation experts Bob Crawford and John Henderson from C-Tech Innovation kick-started the discussion with a thorough presentation of the market trends and value functions for the new eco-building materials. The exploitation team worked on brainstorming seven business models for each of the expected project results in the areas of insulated wall panels, coatings and insulation material. Based on the rich input received during the workshop, the exploitation experts will produce draft business plans. The next and last Exploitation Workshop is planned to take place in June 2016.
