GRI to participate in EU funded Life+ project aimed at increasing gypsum recycling
28-09-2012 13:30
EuroGypsum has issued a press release in connecting with receiving the grant from EU with a.o. the following content:

“Gypsum plasterboard waste is fully and always recyclable. The project is an incentive to recycle more. The project innovation lies in considering the supply chain (demolishers, recyclers, manufacturers) to create a recycling and resource efficient economy.

The aim of the project is to close the loop effectively and transform the plasterboard demolition waste market to achieve higher recycling rates of plasterboard waste. The major obstacle to close the loop is that buildings are currently demolished and not dismantled in the majority of the Member states of EU. This leads to unsegregated waste going to landfill without having the possibility to recover valuable recyclable materials, among others gypsum plasterboard waste.

The manufacturers involved in the project will strive to include 30% recycled gypsum in the plasterboard, also including construction and production waste.”

GRI is proud to participate in the project which will run from the beginning of 2013 until 2015.
