Event description
New Circular Economy Business Models for More Sustainable Urban Construction

About this Event

Establishing a Blueprint for a resource-efficient construction sector

On behalf of the CINDERELA consortium, the Delft University of Technology and KplusV are proud to invite all interested actors and stakeholders active in the construction sector to work together to define key enabling actions that will serve as the foundation for a ‘Blueprint for a resource-efficient secondary raw material based construction sector’, an official document that will be part of the H2020 CINDERELA project New Circular Economy Business Models for More Sustainable Urban Construction.

Why:

The CINDERELA project aims to unlock the potential of circular construction business models in order to enable the set up of waste-to-product material flows for urban construction sector based on locally /regionally available resources.

The conference aims to set up a new framework and defining actions for a resource efficient urban construction sector to enable actions for a broad application of SRM based materials taking into account business processes, system boundaries and requirements, needs, conditions, potentials, and obstacles across Europe.

The Blueprint for a resource efficient construction sector will serve as a guide for further collaborations between industries, policy-makers and the CINDERELA project.

What do we want to accomplish and how?

Our aim is to ensure that the Blueprint for a resource efficient construction sector reflects reality. Therefore active involvement of stakeholders is essential.

During the event we want to:

Gather industry partners, national and European policymakers, experts and CINDERELA consortium members to address the opportunities and barriers for a circular urban construction sector

Share and discuss ideas and proposals enabling the use of secondary raw materials in the construction sector.

Learn about inspiring European good practices.

Identify key actions towards secondary raw material based construction sector .

The agenda of the 1,5 day event includes:

Day 1: Thursday, 23 May

CINDERELA introductory session followed by 5 parallel deep-dive sessions providing a forum for presentations and discussions with an active role of industry partners, national and European policymakers, experts and CINDERELA consortium members.

Two rounds of the sessions are planned in order to enable the participants to contribute their feedback to 2 themes of their interest.

Conclusions based on the feedback form the sessions will be presented for a general debate at a plenary session at the end of the day.

Day 2: Friday, 24 May

In the morning a guided tour will be organised to Buiksloterham: Amsterdam’s first circular neighbourhood and one of the world’s best examples of sustainable development from the material to the urban scale.
