Sept 18-19, 2018
Radisson Blu Edwardian, London
The Circular Driven Economy is a 2-day symposium that will cover a range of topics to promote the benefits and opportunities in recycling C&D waste material.
The Circular Economy concept offers an opportunity for organisations to consider alternative solutions to making our environment a more sustainable one. The benefits can be discovered not only by organisations themselves but for industries embracing positive change, and indeed for citizens alike.
The EU Commission is delivering ambitious measures to cut resource use, reduce waste and boost recycling, and moving towards a Circular Economy model. But how can your business build a sustainable model to maximise valuable opportunities for recovered CDW materials?
According to the EU Construction and Demolition Waste Management Protocol (Sept 2016); based on volume, Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste is the largest waste stream in the EU – it represents about one-third of all waste produced. Proper management of C&D waste and recycled materials – including the correct handling of hazardous waste - can have major benefits in terms of sustainability and the quality of life. But it can also provide major benefits for the EU construction and recycling industry, as it boosts demand for C&D recycled materials.
The Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC aims to have 70% of Construction and Demolition waste recycled by 2020. However, with the exception of a small number of EU countries, only about 50% of C&D waste is currently being recycled. This symposium will bring together a selection of experts in the field to discuss issues around dealing with legislation, barriers to re-use, opportunities for recovered materials, and advanced recycling models. We will also present the business model for developing a C&D waste material processing business, and identify the challenges faced by many companies in urban construction, and how the Circular Economy can provide a suitable solution.
Join us at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in London on 18th and 19th September to find out more about the benefits and opportunities of a Circular Economy.
