Construction

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