The biggest challenges that the construction demolition and recycling industry face today can vary from country to country depending on a variety of factors, including local legislation and incentives. In short, many businesses are typically driven by economic incentives; therefore, recycling needs to be more cost effective than sending the material to a landfill.
Other issues associated with the construction demolition and recycling industry are a set of acceptable quality standards for recycled material and its potential uses, e.g., load-bearing concrete. This could be assisted in the upstream sorting process by ensuring a more homogeneous material, such as separating materials like brick and concrete where possible before being processed. An element of this would include design. Many buildings and structures being demolished today were
designed and built decades ago when a recycling plan would have not been in the criteria. The subject of
older buildings and structures leads on to another factor to be considered, which is
contamination and classification of hazardous substances. Asbestos was
commonly used in construction throughout most of the 20th
century, and dealing with it still causes
challenges to this day.
While a lot of the material processed within the construction demolition and recycling industry can now be repurposed, one of the main challenges that remains is what to do with the silt that is removed at the end of the process. This is often a true waste material, but many companies continue to search for other uses for this material.
