The European Commission has funded a report called "Construction and demolition waste management practices and their economic impacts". The project was undertaken by SYMONDS GROUP (United Kingdom) in association with ARGUS (Germany), COWI Consulting Engineers and Planners (Denmark) and PRC Bouwcentrum (the Netherlands).
Basic aim of the project was to investigate the quantities of construction and demolition waste (CDW) among the European Union as well as the measures, which each Member States has taken to improve the re-use and the recycling of this waste stream. The report describes the best practices in this field as well as the economics of the CDW reuse and recycling.
