The increasing volume of Construction and demolition waste (CDW) associated with economic growth is posing challenges to the sustainable management of the built environment. The largest fraction of all the CDW generated in the member states of the European Union (EU) is End-of-life (EOL) concrete. The most widely applied method for EOL concrete...

In recent years there has been growing interest in urban mining in buildings from various environmental and economic perspectives. Materials hidden in buildings are attractive alternatives to raw ones and building activities are responsible for a large share of urban waste in many societies. The paper presents an analysis of possibilities for...

The sustainable development policies presently in place, along with the Paris Agreement on climate change, are clear indications that economic growth must be made environmentally sustainable to ensure the transition from a linear to a circular economy. Given the large volumes of construction and demolition waste (C&DW) generated, which account...

This study investigates the efficiency of electrodynamic fragmentation (EDF) technology for the up-cycling of concrete waste. Tests were performed at a continuous production scale at various operating conditions and showed that high liberation and recovery rates of aggregates were obtained after just one treatment step performed at 1 kWh/t....

Pre-demolition audit or waste audit is the tool to assess the materials to be removed from the building or infrastructure and their potential value by external experts prior to the demolition or renovation activity. Such audits are essential since they enable all stakeholders involved to get information of the composition of waste and make it...

Although the need for a more circular economy is supported by diverse people in both politics as well as in the scientific community, implementation of circular principles in reality is rarely occurring. This study shows how quantitative models can help to develop new policies for enhancing circularity in the construction sector. By means of a...

One of the main challenging problems associated with the use of Recycled Aggregates (RA) is the level of mixed contaminants. For utilizing RA in high-grade applications, it is essential to monitor and minimise the content of the pollutants. To this extent the C2CA concrete recycling process investigates a combination of smart demolition,...

This paper discusses the possibilities to build durable and sustainable pavement structures in developing countries. Attention will be paid to geometric design aspects which have a significant effect on pavement life. Following this attention will be paid to the importance of controlling wheel loads rather than axle loads. Also the importance of...

One of high efficient ways to reuse the recycled construction and demolition waste (CDW) is to consider it as a road base material. The recycled CDW however is mainly a mix of recycled masonry and concrete with a wide variation in composition. This results that the mechanical properties of cement treated demolition waste are not only determined...
