Since construction is one of the oldest trades in the world, so is the waste produced in this industry. However, it was over time that some of these elements started to become a social problem specifically when they began to generate a negative environmental impact. In this article, we review some strategies focused on mitigating environmental damage such as waste regulation, optimization of construction processes, and waste reuse (for construction and non-construction purposes). We will see some examples and difficulties in such strategies to capture a perspective on construction waste in new buildings.

Abstract

Since construction is one of the oldest trades in the world, so is the waste produced in this industry. However, it was over time that some of these elements started to become a social problem specifically when they began to generate a negative environmental impact. In this article, we review some strategies focused on mitigating environmental damage such as waste regulation, optimization of construction processes, and waste reuse (for construction and non-construction purposes). We will see some examples and difficulties in such strategies to capture a perspective on construction waste in new buildings.
