Resource efficient use of mixed wastes improving management of construction and demolition waste
Final report - Study
This study was initiated in January 2015, led by Deloitte in partnership with BRE, ICEDD, VTT, RPS and FCT of NOVA University of Lisbon. It aims at investigating the current Construction and demolition waste (CDW) management situation in EU Member States, identifying obstacles to recycling and potential deficiencies that could lead to non-compliance with EU waste legislation. Good practices in terms of creating conditions for increasing CDW recycling and for improving the quality of recycling and recovery were identified and a set of recommendations to address potential barriers was... formulated. In parallel, success stories of efficient CDW management were showcased in 6 case studies, illustrating key elements for success, as well as any necessary preconditions. Finally, the credibility of official CDW statistics was assessed, identifying sources of inaccuracy and proposing measures for improvement.
