Interdisciplinary Research into Environmental Impact Assessment


In order to protect the immediate environment of building structures, there are specific requirements for the environmental compatibility of building materials and building products, especially if they come into contact with soil
and ground water.
In this context, the Institute for Building Research (ibac) at the RWTH Aachen University is conducting various research projects to examine the environmental compatibility of very different building materials and
evaluated. An environmental impact assessment is also required, among other things, for approvals in accordance with the EU Construction Products Directive at the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt).
