IFAT 2020 | Recycling Construction Material
Building site, road construction or demolition waste: Wherever there is construction and renovation, waste is generated. Over half of all waste in Germany is produced by construction. Natural resources such as sand or gravel are becoming scarce. This makes it increasingly important to extract new raw materials from old building materials and integrate them back into the economic cycle. The difficulty: Only less recycled material is being reused. Recycling companies are reaching their limits and are asking for intensive educational work concerning their certified material. The political framework conditions must be created in order to use the recycled material. In the film architects of Werner Sobek Group shows their flagship project built up by completely recycled material. The Institute of Applied Construction Research is working for recycling technology to produce light granulates and UBA explains, what measures could increase the demand for recycled building materials on the market.
