Recovery and management of construction and demolition waste

The main objective is to prevent and minimize the generation of construction and demolition waste (CDW) as well as the development of processes, models and management systems that help optimize its reuse and recycling. All this from the analysis and improvement of practices applied in processes of work waste management throughout buildings life cycle. It aims to generate new knowledge for the proper treatment of waste from the point of its management as well as technical knowledge needed for effective selective separation. It works to promote and facilitate deconstruction systems and components so its reuse and recycling increases.

  • Management of construction and demolition waste (CDW)
  • Use of CDWs. Recycled aggregates for construction 
  • Waste recycling to obtain new construction materials
