CobBauge

The CobBauge project is part of the European Union to reduce carbon emissions of the FCE area by 2020 by 20% (2012/27 / EU). The energy consumed for the building sector currently represents 40% of the total energy produced (UE2010), 60% of which is used by occupants to heat buildings.

The cob houses are commonly found in the Channel Regions of France and Great Britain. So the objective of the CobBauge project is to create new techniques and methods for the preservation of buildings.

The INTERREG VA France (Channel) – co-funded by the ERDF and involves 6 French and British partners.

 

Duration of the project : 07/2017 – 06/2023

Total budget : € 4,127,365.09

ERDF co-financing : € 2,827,181.91 (69%)

 

Cob is a mixture of earth and fiber, such as straw, which is then mixed with water and used to construct buildings.
