Construction

In Europe, 10-15% of building material is wasted during construction. 60% of European offices 60% are not used even during working hours. 54% of demolition materials are landfilled, while some countries only landfill 6%. In The Netherlands, 97% of construction and demolition waste is reused, mostly in low-grade applications. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions: use renewable sources, share utilities and space, increase repair, reuse and remanufacturing.
