Seven European cities pilot solutions to be more circular

| Høje-Taastrup and Roskilde (Denmark), Mikkeli (Finland), Apeldoorn (the Netherlands), Bodø (Norway), Porto (Portugal) and Seville (Spain) are the seven European cities that will pilot a series of demonstration actions on construction and demolition waste (CDW) and organic waste (OW) with the aim of achieving material circularity.

How is the construction sector combatting their waste?

| As the effects on the world become too great to deny, we’re seeing more and more focus turning towards the level of waste produced globally. A widespread understanding that this isn’t sustainable has lead to various sectors looking for ways to address their own waste issues.

Euroslag calls for fair treatment of ferrous slags
