Responsibly managing waste on a construction jobsite is a vital component of sustainable building. In this context, managing waste means minimizing the construction waste or demolition debris (C&D) that leaves the jobsite for landfill disposal. In 1998, the U.S. EPA estimated that 136 million tons of building-related waste is generated in the U.S. annually, which is 25% to 40% of the national solid waste stream. A 2003 update shows an increase to 164,000 million tons annually, of which 9% is construction waste, 38% is renovation waste, and 53% is demolition debris. C&D waste disposal triggers a sequence of adverse effects that ...
Radioactivity reduces over time, so in principle the waste needs to be isolated for a period of time until its components no longer pose a hazard. This can mean hours to years for some common medical or industrial radioactive wastes or many thousands of years for high-level wastes . The main approaches to managing radioactive waste to date have been segregation and storage for short-lived wastes, near-surface disposal for low and some intermediate level wastes, and deep and secure burial for the long-lived high-level wastes. A summary of the amounts of radioactive wastes and management approaches for most developed countries are ...
Deconstruction Costs Revealed (aka Sustainable Demolition)
Real Life LEED is back! Hope the withdrawal wasn't too harsh. I'm looking forward to relieving some of what I'm calling 'killer post constipation' (AKA my post ideas backlog... sorry for the mental image), so be sure to come back soon! A colleague of mine is working on a LEED project where an existing building on site has been determined not worthy of renovation and is slated to be demolished. Being the good environmental stewards we are (and having a desire not to ruin chances of earning MRc2, Construction Waste Management later on), I was tasked with searching for information about the relative ... market research, surveys and trends
where to recycle and reclaim materials including building materials
Sometimes it is difficult to find a single source for recycling and reclaiming materials. Over the past several months, I have read and received references for recycling information and places to take my building materials. The benefits of recycling include: Extending a product’s lifecycle by reusing for other projects/projects; Saving money by not paying landfills to take your debris; Practicing sustainability in agriculture and construction industries; Materials such as drywall and roof shingles can take up a lotta space in landfills. Building debris accounts for more than 100 million tons of waste each year; we can ... market research, surveys and trends

During a project's planning stage, identify local recycling and salvage operations that could process site related waste. Program the design to recycle or salvage at least 50 percent construction, demolition and land clearing waste, excluding soil, where markets or on-site recycling opportunities exist. Disposing of construction and demolition (C&D) waste materials is usually a small part of a larger construction project or development. However, C&D waste management is becoming more problematic as the environmental and economic consequences are becoming more evident. In 2003, the US EPA estimated roughly 164 million tons ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Barnegat Bay environmental protection bills advance
A package of bills designed to establish several new environmental rules in an effort to reverse what state officials see as decades of environmental neglect and contamination of Barnegat Bay was approved by a joint legislative committee Thursday at a joint meeting in Toms River. Sen. Bob Smith (D-Middlesex), chairman of the upper house's Environmental Committee, said Barnegat Bay is an environmental disaster more than 30 years in the making. He said the bay is listed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as second only to Chesapeake Bay as having the worst eutrophication problem in the country. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
With More Privatization, Aquino Uses Same Old Policies by Predecessors
MANILA - In his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Benigno Aquino III used the various cases of misuse of public funds by the Arroyo administration as a pretext to promote the so-called Public-Private Partnerships or PPPs. According to Aquino, PPPs will address the lack of resources due to a depleted government budget for the country's many needs. Incidentally, PPPs were among the legacies of the first Aquino administration. It was during the term of Noynoy's mother, the late President Cory Aquino, that the first PPPs in the power generation sector were implemented. In 1987, she issued Executive Order ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling Home Page
construction and demolition (C&D) materials account for almost 22 percent of the waste stream. Many of these materials can be reused or recycled, thus prolonging our supply of natural resources and potentially saving money in the process. Common C&D materials include lumber, drywall, metals, masonry (brick, concrete, etc.), carpet, plastic, pipe, rocks, dirt, paper, cardboard, or green waste related to land development. Of these, metals are the most commonly recycled material while lumber makes up the majority of debris that still goes to a landfill. Below are several ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Dear vergita, Thanks for your question. First, let me request that if any of the following is unclear or if you require any further research – please don’t hesitate to ask me for a clarification. You asked what is essentially a multipart question – what we would like to do is to get a handle on environmental legislation (and other constraints) in the UK and EU (European Union) as they apply to the Ford Motor Company. We are also interested in such constraints that may have to be taken into account in the future. Finally, we are interested in the impact of such legislation and constraints on the business of ...
