300 MATERIALS PASSPORTS WITHIN THE PROJECT
The BAMB Materials Passports platform will fill a gap in the marketplace by providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ to describe Circular Economy value across the building cycle, especially for using and re-using components and materials, and reducing generation of waste.
A main aim is to support transition of the building industry from linear to circular by letting users identify value potential throughout the building cycle, from planning and construction through occupancy, repairs, renovations, repurposing and decommissioning, and by providing a continuous capacity to track component and materials quality & modifications.
The platform also connects individual products to their use in buildings. As part of that it includes a capacity to describe materials health. A large body of studies suggests that healthier buildings improve productivity and are one of the main economic benefits of knowing what’s in your building.

Standardization and existing tools
Transparency and secrecy
Two topics of high importance for the development of Materials Passports are those of transparency and secrecy. Information stored for Materials Passports should have a purpose. That means that is should be accessible by those parties capable of connecting it to an action. Having information stored which cannot be accessed due to secrecy is not beneficial for this.
