More than 50 professionals from the construction sector were given an introduction to the ECO-SEE eco-building materials during the project's second training workshop, hosted by Acciona in Madrid.

The ECO-SEE project was explained to attendees by Maria Casado from Acciona, during a presentation entitled, 'New eco-materials and components for healthier and more energy efficient buildings'. The presentation was based on the ECO-SEE training materials which have been developed by BRE.

Samples and prototypes from ECO-SEE partners were also on show, giving participants the chance to see and feel the eco-materials under development. Samples of insulation, coatings and panels were available, as well as prototypes of the photocatalytic lime mortar and ECO-SEE exterior wall panel.

The workshop also included a tour of the ECO-SEE test cells, located in the Acciona demopark. Here, the construction methods, panels and the monitoring and hardware system installed in the test cells were explained to attendees.

The slides from the ECO-SEE presentation are available here.
