Recycling construction material: From beer to natural resources
More than 50% of the waste in Germany contains residues from construction activities and demolition works. Every year, about 210 million tonnes of such mineral waste including excavation residues are generated in Germany; this is 4,000 times the weight of the Munich Olympic Tower (which has a weight of 52,500 tonnes).
How is this waste handled? Using the example of the demolition works of the former Paulaner Brewery on Nockherberg, IFAT shows the recycling of building materials. Find out more details in the podcast or in the picture gallery.
