Factsheet Circular concrete chain and multi-hydraulic engineering
In this project Rijkswaterstaat and three large municipalities investigated the level to which they can include raw material efficiency in public tenders for infra projects. The project comprised two pilots. (June 2017)
The first was the Rijkswaterstaat 'multi-hydraulic engineering project'. In this, Rijkswaterstaat examined the added value of raw material efficiency in replacing fifty locks and flood defences between 2020 and 2040. In the second pilot, the three bigger municipalities, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Amsterdam, developed a joint strategy for raw material-efficient procurement for infra projects. This did not only focus on the possibilities of reuse, but also on new technology and innovative applications.
