Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology that has been developed to evaluate the environmental impact of buildings, with respect to their processes, their materials and use (energy) throughout the whole life cycle of a building. It is not to be confused with Life Cycle Costs which instead focuses on cost reduction, especially interesting when embarking in the design and construction of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs).

Around 461 million ton/year of C&DW are generated in EU28. Recent studies on the characterization of C&DW samples at European level revealed a predominant fraction of concrete (52% average). Over the last years, novel technology has been developed aiming to guarantee high quality recycled concrete aggregates for use in new concrete, thereby closing the concrete loop.
