LCA for a residential Italian multifamily building: a case study
June 5-10, 2016
The importance of the construction sector involves environmental, economic and social aspects. From an environmental point of view, the sector consumes about 60% of the mineral extraction from the lithosphere , and requires up to 40% of the total energy demand of an industrialized country . Moreover, a huge amount of construction and demolition wastes are generated: 821 Mt/y only in Europe in 2012, i.e. 32.7% of the total amount of European waste [3-5]. An environmental friendly policy appears then necessary to improve the environmental performances of the sector.
