The main focus of the Reuse Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) project is to analyze the potential environmental benefits (non-renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions) of reusing materials in buildings. The alternative design strategies of various pilot projects (both new buildings and energy retrofits) in different regions of Switzerland will be studied in detail. In this way, the financial costs of reuse and the potential environmental benefits of reuse will be evaluated in combination with other low-carbon strategies.
