Assessing the recycling potential in buildings

Thormark, Catarina LU (2001) CIB Task Group 39: Deconstruction and Materials Reuse: Technology, Economic, and Policy. In CIB Publication 266 p.78-86
Abstract
An important goal for the building sector is to produce buildings with a minimum of environmental impact. Recycling can considerably reduce these impacts. An aim is therefore to produce new buildings with a minimum of environmental impact during their lifetime and with a high recycling potential. This paper presents a suggestion for assessing the recycling potential. The recycling potential can be used in planning a demolition, in the design of new buildings, etc. The paper will also discuss the issues related to comparison of the recycling potential to the impact from production, i.e. how to tell which of two is the best option considering different aspects of production and recycling potential.
