CRC-P: Recycling construction demolition waste to manufacture sustainable bricks

The building and construction sector in Australia produces 20.4 million tonnes of Construction Demolition Waste (CDW) per year. This accounts for 43% of Australia’s waste production; more than 35% of CDW becomes landfill. CDW is steadily growing (2% p.a.), increasingly impacting the environment and waste management nationally. This urgent problem can be addressed by developing advanced recycling and manufacturing processes that utilise CDW in high-value sustainable brick products, which will be used in large volume by the building and construction sector. This CRC-P will boost the recycling capacity of CDW, thereby reducing landfilled waste, enhancing sustainability and resource efficiency, and growing the circular construction economy.
