Inclusion of recycling in the assessment of buildings.

Thormark, Catarina LU (2000) Integrated Life-Cycle Design of Materials and Structures In [Host publication title missing] p.179-184
Abstract
Environmental assessment of buildings has become an increasing research field and the methodology of LCA is increasingly used. In case studies, the phase after demolition is mostly either excluded or handled in a rather limited way. However, in the design phase, the aspects of future recycling needs to be regarded and by that the phases after demolition. Inclusion of these aspects in the assessment of buildings implies both theoretical considerations and practical needs. This paper presents experiences from two studies focused on the potential for recycling and the benefits from recycling building materials. Potential use, possibilities and problems are discussed.
