Two-day inaugural event to explore higher value opportunities for recovered C&D waste materials
THE Circular Driven Economy Symposium 2018 will take place at Radisson Blu Edwardian, in London, on 18-19 September. The conference has been organized by a group of international firms and bodies working across policy, research, materials processing and end-use applications – bringing together leading European experts in the construction, demolition waste-recycling sectors to share insights and business models for the circular economy.
The partner organizations involved in the symposium are: AF Gruppen; CDE; The Sheehan Group; SINTEF; and Queen’s University Belfast.
The seminar programme will cover a number of key themes, including legislation, opportunities for recovered materials, urban construction challenges and barriers to reprocessing and advanced recycling models. Day two of the event will focus on business models and include a site visit to the Sheehan Group for interested delegates to see a circular driven economy business model in action.
The EU Commission is delivering ambitious measures to cut resource use, reduce waste and boost recycling and moving towards a circular economy model.
Tara Sheehan, finance director of the Sheehan Group, commented: ‘The circular economy is a concept in which materials are produced to be constantly recycled or reused. It requires rethinking of design, planning principles, engineering, retailing, reuse, recycling and consumer adoption of its principles to keep resources in use for as long as conceivable in order to extract maximum value and preserve natural resources.’
