ENCORT-CDW: Evaluation of the European recovery target for construction and demolition waste
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
The present EU target for recovery of construction and demolition waste does not promote sustainability. Interpretations of waste and recovery definitions rather than resource efficiency and safe handling affect the monitoring. The general weight-based target has to be altered to favour recycling of resource-rich materials, not only of high weight materials. High grade recycling should be distinguished and prioritized to ensure safe recovery. This requires improved knowledge on waste generation and handling as well as on emissions of dangerous substances. A common Nordic approach is advocated.
