The number of raw materials consumed and waste generated by the construction industry is no longer a viable solution in the future. It is required for the construction industry to move from a linear towards a circular economy (CE) by circular construction (CC). The unfamiliarity in actions that need to be taken for CC is still new terrain for...

The construction industry (CI) has to transition towards a circular economy (CE) before 2050 to achieve the ambition of our Dutch government. Within the CI there is an information gap leading to suboptimal recycling and reuse of materials and products. Capturing and sharing this information in a digital tool will be critical for the construction...
