Outpouring Construction & Demolition Waste Necessitate Adoption of Recycled Construction Aggregates
Rapid urbanization, and proliferation in construction and infrastructure development activities allude significant amount of waste being generated worldwide, which has been a key environment concern among industrialists. Continued emphasis on the environmental conservation has further instigated the critical need for recycling and reusing construction materials.
According to the European Commission, construction and demolition waste account for nearly 25%-30% of the waste generated in the EU. Estimations from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) state that, in 2015, around 548 million tons of construction and demolition debris was generated in the US. Significant efforts are being taken by governments in countries such as the US, the Netherlands, and Germany, apropos of construction and demolition waste recycling and reuse. Introduction of new standards by the EU for recycling and reuse of construction and demolition waste in drainage, building, roads, and other construction projects, has further created growth opportunities for the recycled construction aggregates market.
