CESB 2016 - Central Europe Towards Sustainable Building 2016: Innovations for Sustainable Future | Year: 2016
Circular economy and resource efficiency in the construction sector are in the focus of European policies   and life cycle thinking can lead to a circular economy. Goals within the concept of a circular economy should be zero waste and a high resource efficiency. When working towards these two goals, the whole life cycle and therefore for example the durability and recyclability of the product being produced needs to be considered, next to the secondary/recycled materials it contains. To generate meaningfull conclusions it is important to analyse the system that the secondary materials exist in.
