EU Construction and Demolition Waste Management Protocol

At a glance

The European Commission has developed with stakeholders (representatives of the concrete industry were involved) the Construction and Demolition Waste Management Protocol (non-binding guidelines) to help practitioners, public authorities, certification bodies and clients of recycled materials to handle properly this waste stream. It promotes the management of CDW in line with the waste hierarchy (with a priority for prevention and reuse as higher ranking options than recycling and recovery), therefore it contributes to resource efficiency. The Protocol is intended to raise awareness about legal requirements, as well as state-of-the-art techniques. To Protocol has been translated into several EU languages.
