GREATER GREEN online seminar "Reuse of Building Materials"

On May 13, 2020, we had the pleasure of organizing a seminar online with the Belgian company ROTOR during which we discussed the theme of the circular economy in sustainable construction.

When a building is to be demolished, the first step towards a more sustainable approach is to ask whether certain parts of it could be preserved.

Currently, it is estimated that less than 1% of the materials disposed of as waste in a construction or demolition project are actually reused.

Lionel Devlieger, one of the three founders of Rotor in 2006, shared their 10-year project to optimize construction waste.

Their approach has resulted in a kind of mapping of professionals proposing materials that can be reused from a technical point of view. (see Opalis.be).
