Aims

Clarification of connections concerning the whole length of life of building products with accent to permanent need of ecological load lowering in the building industry. Knowledge of connection between design and correct recommendation of building materials in structure, respecting ecological demands concerning their interaction with surrounding. To obtain a survey in the area of environmental and economical aspects in secondary raw materials utilization. Systematic approach to the solution of quality end environment problems of production and the utilization of building materials.
