Since the role of the sustainability concept in the construction sector has gained a priority importance in recent years, two questions arise:
- To what extent the reuse option may contribute to sustainability in construction sector?
- Is this alternative is a solution for now or for the future?
The aim of this workshop is to provide a unique opportunity to present and discuss the results of the studies carried out within an EU FP7 funded project “ Innovative strategies for high grade material recovery from construction and demolition waste” - IRCOW ( for details see www.ircow.eu). Another aim is to gather feedback from the participants concerning the issues related to the reuse of materials and elements of C&DW.
