Putting Science into Standards: Circular technologies in construction
The 2023 PSIS workshop will focus on Circular technologies for construction.
The construction sector is one of the priority areas addressed by the European Green Deal's Circular Economy Action Plan. The sector is responsible for over 35% of the EU’s total waste generation, with construction and demolition waste being one of the most significant waste streams.
The uptake of circular economy in the construction sector is influenced by policies scattered in areas ranging from the Waste Framework Directive to the Construction Products Regulation and product standards, with a consequent need for effective coordination.
This PSIS workshop will bring stakeholders from research, scientific and standardisation communities together with policy makers to debate standardisation needs for implementing circular technologies in the construction sector.
- specify circular principles to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable circular economy in the construction ecosystem, covering design to de-construction and end-of-life scenarios in all stages of current and subsequent life cycles
- consider the findings of the gap analysis developed by CEN/TC 350/SC 1 “Circular economy in the construction sector”
- map additional stakeholders’ needs to complement the gap analysis and define future standardisation priorities
- encourage the participation of the scientific community in future standardisation activities.
WHEN: 12 December (14:00-17:15 CET) and 13 December 2023 (08:45-12:00 CET)
- Policy makers.
