Start of our new European Interreg NWE project: PREUSE

And off we go! Today is the launch day of our new European Interreg NWE project: PREUSE—standing for Public Responses to Enable the Circulation of Salvaged building Elements. We are teaming with 8 partner organisations: Bellastock (FR), La Fabrique des Quartiers (FR), the Greater Paris Metropolis (FR), LIST (LU), the City of Lorient (FR), the City of Mechelen (BE), the City of Utrecht (NL) and the Municipality of Wiltz (LU). Together, we are going to explore how to facilitate the development of reuse centres by local and regional public authorities; and how to consolidate the construction industry’s capacity to uptake salvage and reuse practices. The project expected outcomes include:

- A strategy for developing reuse centres for construction materials salvaged from public works sites.

- A series of local action plans for the future development of reuse centres.

- 3 pilot projects to test innovative formats of reuse centres.

- Public and private organisations trained to salvage and reuse construction materials.

We are gathering with our Partners and Associated Organisations at Rotor's headquarters in Brussels for the project kick-off meeting.

We're delighted and very excited to be embarking on this new adventure with our partners. We'll keep you posted as the project develops!
