Conference Dates

June 5-10, 2016

From an environmental point of view, the sector consumes about 60% of the mineral extraction from the lithosphere [1], and requires up to 40% of the total energy demand of an industrialized country [2]. 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.
