Think tank about pre-demolition audit and waste flows from demolition sites


Event delayed

Due to external reasons, the EDA 2015 think tank has being postponed.

There is a conflict of date with other related activities organized by the European Commission, so the date has to be changed.

The new date will be announced soon on the EDA website and newsletters.



Demolition is about handling the space change, transforming waste (what used to be construction products) into new resources and creating at the same time room for future development.

Everyone involved on this process, from the general public, to construction product manufacturers, public administrations,… and the demolition industry itself, is very interested to work towards a circular economy (oriented to reuse and recycle as much as possible).

To generate this circular economy and to make sure the goals on recycling are achieved there are two key aspects to be prepared to detail: the pre-demolition audit (also known as waste management assessment) and the tracking of waste flows from demolition sites.

For this purpose, the European Demolition Association, EDA, organizes this second think tank and will invite to participate the related stakeholders.



October 15th, 2015 (Thursday)

The think tank will be a morning meeting, with two sessions of debate.

There will be a panel of experts to introduce the topics and the key goal of the meeting is to engage the participation, through an open debate with related stakeholders and EU Officials..

09:00 – Welcome

09:15 – Session 1: Pre-demolition audit and waste management assessment/reporting
