On 17 February 2022, ACR+ joined the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform online webinar on ‘Collection and recycling of construction and demolition waste’. The webinar presented policy measures and circular methods from Interreg projects CONDEREFF, SMART WASTE and CIRCE to improve the collection and recycling of construction and demolition waste in line with the European agenda, aiming to inspire local and regional authorities.ACR+ shared several inspirational examples such as collection and closed-loop recycling of gypsum waste in the Dutch municipality of Reimerswaal; collection and closed-loop recycling of bricks on a local scale in Odense, Denmark; and re-use and material exchange platforms in the Brussels region. Key elements to boost circularity of the entire industry discussed during the workshop are: tools enabling the identification of empty buildings, mandatory pre-audits, mandatory use of recycled materials (particularly concrete), cradle to cradle approach – eco-design of new buildings. You can also find references on most of these practices in the Sustainable construction guidelines for local and regional authorities published by ACR+Presentations and recording are available here.
