Abstract

On average, Europe generates around 890 million tonnes of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) per year and only 50% of this CDW is recycled. This is far from the objectives determined in the European Directive for 2020 and aware of this situation, the European Countries are implementing national policies to prevent the waste that can be avoidable and to promote measures to increase recycling and recovering. In Spain, one of these measures has been the development of a CDW recycling guide for the manufacture of mortar, concrete, brick and lightweight aggregates.
