Construction and Demolition, and how to guide, approach to a circular economy.

Introduction Global urbanization has accelerated human population expansion in recent decades, requiring more material resources. Construction uses 32% of natural resources (Yeheyis et al., 2012). However, this figure is lower than in the 1990s (40%) (Rees, 2010); it is estimated that over 75% of building waste has a residual value and is not presently utilized…
