ACTIVITIES IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Circular Economy Congress

Strategies for transitioning the construction sector towards a circular economic model based on reducing, reusing, and recycling waste. Barcelona Building Construmat relied on the Circular Economy Foundation as a curator of the Congress.
The congress discussed how the construction sector needs to move from a linear economic model based on producing, consuming, and eliminating to a circular model based on reducing, reusing, and recycling waste. There were two sessions related to the circular economy: 'Session I. Innovative projects on the circular economy.' and 'Session II. Round table. How to incorporate the principles of the circular economy in the Spanish construction and deconstruction sector.'

Dedicated space inside the Future Arena Showroom

In the space dedicated to the Circular Economy, the Colombian company 'Conceptos Plásticos' exhibited a building solution based on bricks made out of recycled plastic.
