This research service analyses the European construction and demolition (C&D) recycling services market. It describes the present status of waste volume management. The C&D waste covered in this research includes construction, excavation, and demolition waste. Hazardous wastes are excluded from this study. This study does not cover final recycling processes, such as metal or glass smelting, plastic remoulding, and waste to energy processes. The market is analysed for the period 2009 to 2020, with 2012 as the base year.
The building sector in Europe generates vast quantities of waste in pre-construction and post-construction stages. Construction and demolition (C&D) denotes two types of
waste, which differ in terms of process, volume, and type of material, where the “demolition” type accounts for nearly % of the material volume.
However, in the report, this study C&D are combined and analysed as one stream of material waste.
The management of C&D waste generated by the construction activities has become a major concern in Europe driven by legal requirements towards waste prevention
(construction waste) and the limitation of landfilling (demolition waste). There is a forecasted rise of generated waste volumes ofx% until 2020.
Nearly x% of the generated C&D waste is potentially reusable. However, the recycling process of materials is not managed properly.
Recycling should follow an organised and systematic method of separation, collection, and transportation to avoid landfilling or incineration without energy recovery.
The C&D recycling services market is currently at a growth stage and is poised for medium growth at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x% from 2012 to 2020.
Revenue contribution in Europe was $x billion in 2012.
The major market driver is related to the Waste Directive and legislative targets to reach recycling rates of x% in 2020.
However, waste management is unequally developed across Europe, with the most advanced solutions and technologies installed in Benelux, Germany, and in the Alpine
States. Regions such as Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), Iberia, Italy, and Scandinavia are in strong need of introducing effective C&D recycling schemes to
sustain waste management with the rest of region.
Until 2020, Iberia is expected to become the most engaging market for C&D recycling at a CAGR of x%. The country needs to improve collection schemes and introduce
innovative recycling technologies.
The landfilling of C&D waste is expected to decrease, as European countries are shifting from environmentally harmful waste management to material recovery from
