C&D Waste forms a significant portion of solid waste generated in a country. As the economy expands and urbanization accelerates, a country move from developing to developed status; the percentage of C&D Waste (as compared to Municipal waste) increases. If left unmanaged or managed conventionally through the use of incinerators and landfill, the large quantity of C&D Waste will soon create a huge strain to the existing waste management infrastructure and the whole cycle will become unsustainable. This report focuses on the various approaches towards managing Construction and Demolition Wastes in the Asia region. It introduces the concept of Waste to Resource (WTR) to readers and highlights the numerous successful business cases and examples where waste has been successfully transformed into useful resources through the careful selection of technology and introduction of proper legislation and policy changes.

Create 3R Knowledge Base

3R Knowledge Hub is continuously working towards capturing, creating and disseminating reduce, reuse, recycle (3R) knowledge products on various topics related to waste management in Asia. We continually seek our knowledge partners’ support in doing so.  We therefore request all the interested parties to support us with information on the following-

  1. City Waste Profile: City waste Profile is an assessment of waste management situation in a city. Local authorities and/or any interested individual and organization is welcome to share the information.
  2. Case Study: Case studies that highlight any flagship projects on solid waste management and 3R are welcome.
  3. Technology Factsheet: 3R recycling technology manufacturers and distributors are requested to share the available recycling technologies. Please note 3RKH do not endorse any of the technology or trade name, the sheer purpose is to share information.
