Construction and infrastructure projects

Show this page in the menu

Large quantities of resources are consumed throughout the construction industry with major waste streams arising during the construction, renovation and demolition of buildings. Construction consumes more than half of resources used in the Netherlands.

The majority of demolition waste is recycled and used as a foundation material for infrastructure i.e. groundwork, road and hydraulic engineering and civil engineering. When renovating roads, the foundation material can be re-used without any problems as foundation material which means that there is no need for new granulate.
