Sustainable management of construction waste, reuse of fire-rated Products
The building sector is very important for Sweden and the Swedish economy. The climate impact of the building sector in Sweden is close to 10 million ton CO2-equiv. per year. Further the sector corresponds to approximately 40% of Sweden’s total energy use and creates a significant portion of the total material flows in and waste produced by Swedish society. There is a clear and pressing need to reduce the amount of waste, but focus should be placed on reducing the primary production of waste and increasing the portion of material and products that are re-used as opposed to other end-of-life options.
