Recycling construction & demolition waste
Bridging the gap between technical feasibility & policy needs (upon invitation only)
On 2 July 2014, the European Commission adopted its Circular Economy package. This package includes a Communication on Resource Efficiency Opportunities in the Building Sector. One of the key areas within this communication is the recycling of construction and demolition waste (C&DW).
Given this background, The Concrete Initiative will be bringing together key stakeholders for a lunch debate on 27 October 2014. Questions to be discussed include:
- Which concrete recycling options offer the best social, environmental & economic outcomes?
- How can we increase recycling rates across Europe?
- What are the challenges which need to be overcome?
- Which policies are needed to achieve our objectives?
Our objective? To bridge the gap between the technicalities of recycling and the policy arena!
