The European concrete industry welcomes the initiative by the Commission to write this Protocol. “Management” is the key word here, since it is primarily the processes collecting, sorting, treating and assuring the quality of recycled material that are lacking (rather than the technical basis). Better processes for demolition, collection and sorting of C&DW will help with providing a consistent supply of good quality recycled aggregates. The European Concrete Platform and The Concrete Initiative have been active in the area of C&DW and concrete recycling and will contribute actively in the process to develop this protocol.
