WHY /

Current and future advancements show that the request for natural resources will rise three times in 2050.

Main reasons :  the global economic growth & the increase of the world population.

The building industry is responsible for the use of up to 40% of the materials produced globally and about 35% of the world’s waste.

In order to create a clean and safe living environment for future generations, a fundamental change has to be made.

According to EU waste legislation, European countries are aiming to a recovery target of construction and demolition waste up to 70%. 

What is the key to increase the quality and quantity of recycling and reuse of construction and demolition materials ?

Moving from a Linear Economy (Produce-Use-Waste) to a Circular Economy in construction (Produce-Use-Reuse).

 

Design for Disassembly, Internet of Things and Material banks are being introduced to optimize circular construction practices. 

Circular economy in construction ensures that, in addition to environmentally friendly materials,

resources in the construction chain are being reused as much as possible.

The ultimate goal : a completely circular construction industry in the near future!

this time we make it different :

something old, something new
something borrowed, something... green
