General Description of the Research Project

Sound management and recycling of construction and demolition waste, and development of new technology
The volume of construction and demolition waste (CDW) produced from urban development is rapidly increasing in Asian countries including Vietnam. This project will promote sound management and recycling of construction waste in Vietnam by establishment of guidelines for treatment of construction waste and standard of quality for recycled materials, and development of technologies for using the materials (water purification and permeable subbase). We will propose a strategic business model to boost recycling and review its effectiveness with a local pilot program.

A resource circulation system that can realize Vietnam’s national strategy
Vietnam’s national strategy goal for 2025 is to recycle 50% of CDW. We aim to contribute by building a platform for a resource circulation system for sound management and recycling of CDW in Hanoi, and through business application of the new technologies and business models.
