Sustainability, bioarchitecture and smart cities are a few of the keywords that have dominated communication in the world of building recently. Now, however, attention is being focused on the circular economy, on how to convert waste and unused materials into an economic, social and environmental benefit.
The EU recently introduced a raft of measures on the circular economy with the aim of eliminating landfills and reducing the need for energy recovery, putting an end to food waste, making separate organic waste collection compulsory, lengthening product lifetime and making recyclability and repairability of electrical appliances mandatory so as to end the phenomenon of planned obsolescence.
“The European Commission has focused on an issue that is closely associated with the building market, given that 60% of the waste we generate in Europe comes directly from the world of construction,” noted Norbert Lantschner, SAIE consultant on energy issues and green building, when taking stock of international goals and opportunities for sector companies prior to the event due to be held in October in Bologna.
