SEMINAR: PREDEMOLITION AUDIT FOR CIRCULAR ECONOMY
19 November 2019, Brussels, Belgium
Seminar venue: Confederatie Bouw, Lombardstraat 34-42, B-1000 Brussels
Registration starts at 9 am and seminar ends at 4 pm.
This seminar provides information on the predemolition concept as a tool for increasing the high-quality recycling of construction and demolition waste, and an important measure for avoiding spreading of hazardous materials in the environment due to improved demolition activity. Furthermore, the seminar addresses future drivers and tools supporting the use of predemolition audits to achieve circular economy targets in the demolition sector. A special topic is also how to enhance the lifelong learning of professionals by creating an understanding of waste as a resource.
The seminar aims to bring together stakeholders from along the raw materials value chain representing demolition companies, end-users of construction materials, consultants, scientists from universities, research organizations and public authorities for discussing and exchanging views on hazardous material inventories and construction and demolition waste as a future resource.
The workshop is financially supported by EIT RawMaterials PARADE project. Participation is free of charge but registration is required. Late cancellation after November 11, 2019 or no-show will be charged 100 euro.
Registration opens on September 30 and will end on 10 November 2019. For registration, please click here.
