Online conference "Environmental impacts of selective vs. conventional deconstruction - The case of the Jean Monnet 1 building"

On 26 November 2020 from 14.00 to 15.00, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), with the support of the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development (MECDD) and the Kyoto Fund, invites you to an online information session entitled "Environmental impacts of selective vs. conventional deconstruction - The case of the Jean Monnet 1 building" (Impacts environnementaux d’une déconstruction sélective vs conventionnelle - Le cas du bâtiment Jean Monnet 1).

In practice, the management of demolition waste is currently not fully optimised. The main reasons for this are technical and economic constraints. These can lead to considerable environmental impacts.

With this in mind, the Waste Framework Directive encourages the use of life-cycle thinking approaches to support waste management choices:

  • the most resource-efficient; and
  • one which has the least impact from an environmental point of view.

In this context, the LIST and the MECDD have identified the need for an environmental assessment of the different options for the recovery of demolition waste. The results of this assessment through the concrete pilot case - the Jean Monnet 1 Kirchberg building - are presented during this conference.

This event is free of charge and takes place in French. Pre-registration is compulsory.

It is aimed at public and private actors:

  • of the construction and deconstruction industry;
  • of building planning;
  • in waste management and recovery.
