Research project to address waste in the construction industry

  Research project to address waste in the construction industry A new research initiative will look into ways to help the UK construction industry transition in line with the principles of a circular economy.  UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has given £4.35m to a group of universities to help them establish the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Minerals-Based Construction Materials. The research centre will address the current problems in the construction industry by looking at materials and analysing at what point materials become waste. They will also work to solve the technical barriers to a circular economy by looking at...
