The project DURECOBEL, «Recycling of quarry dust and construction and demolition wastes for the production of novel ecological building elements», aims to develop innovative but still simple and non-energy-intensive processes for the production of novel ecological building elements consisted mainly of quarry dust and construction and demolition waste (CDW). The ultimate objectives of DURECOBEL are preservation of raw materials, reduction of the carbon footprint associated mainly with their extraction and treatment and elimination of environmental impacts due to disposal of large volumes of these wastes.

The project DURECOBEL is performed under the framework of the operational program "Cooperation 2011- Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship", it is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and managed by the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Technology.
