Material Mapper’s vision is to create a market of scale for secondary building materials by mapping them in Europe and lead the transition towards a closed-loop circular construction and demolition industry. The European construction industry is urgently lacking clear, centralised access to information about secondary building material availability in their area, due to the fragmentation and inconsistency with which these public data are captured and stored. This makes building planning with quality secondary building materials time and cost-intensive for stakeholders, in turn making it difficult to comply with the EU’s Waste Directive of 70% recycled/re-used building materials. Our young, multi-award-winning company is planning to launch a €2,420,750.00 project with the EIC over 24 months to build a breakthrough innovation for the whole of Europe using artificial intelligence and machine learning that will extract, read, evaluate, and forecast quantities of secondary building materials for the user, making future planning for property developers seamless through our platform. This grant will get us from TRL 6 to TRL 9, to market-readiness and to projected revenue of + €1M by 2023. We are confident that our product is unique and that we have no direct competition. By combining our deep technology, partnership development, and B2B sales expertise, we are already working closely with major industry actors to harness insights and their existing networks for our customer base.
