Dealing with the waste of the construction industry has, for a long time, been one of the major issues from within the industry itself. Whist a large proportion of the waste in question is suitable for recycling; there is still a great deal of waste that requires new and innovative methods to effectively manage.

Construction waste management is hugely important to reducing the environmental impact of the industry itself. There are several ideas and strategies which have really had an impact on a global scale, and given us potential solutions to big waste management problems.

Innovative Means Of Construction Waste Management!

Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digestion was the result of a long issue, which was how people would deal with bio waste in the most effective and safest possible manner. Even before the growing awareness of climate change caused people to avoid the landfill for all kinds of waste, bio waste created problems relating to harmful gases. Early technologies found ways to convert organic waste into compost and other forms of fertiliser.

This is one of the latest and greatest processes of in-vessel treatments of waste, and is considered by a great many people to be one of the most innovative developed by the waste management industry in the past few years. Not only does it give us a large-scale solution to our organic waste, but it allows us to easily turn the resulting gas from this waste into effective, usable energy.

The process relies on the degradation of waste by specific microorganisms in an environment which is essentially starved of any and all oxygen. It can be used to deal with organic waste and wastewater of almost any form. People will always produce bio waste; as a result, anaerobic digestion is one of the most useful techniques to have been developed in recent years.

Waste To Energy

WTE, also known as Energy From Waste (EFW) has seen some great developments from the industry in recent years. Instead of reusing or processing waste, this strategy actually removes waste. Traditionally, this has involved incinerating waste and using the resulting heat in the form of energy – there are many energy plants that still use this system to this day.

The public is, by and large, against incineration however, which has led to alternative forms of WTE becoming popular, including gasification, thermal depolymerisation and plasma arc gasification.

Both plasma arc gasification and regular gasification are used to convert organic materials into a synthetic gas, composed of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. This gas is then burned to create electrical energy and steam.

The Zero Waste Philosophy

Rather than a process, or a specific technology, Zero Waste is a construction waste management philosophy which has gained ground in the past few years. Zero Waste is the ethical, economical and sustainable goal which involves people making a variety of changes in their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable cycles of natural living.

In this philosophy, discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. In and of itself, zero waste requires that products are specifically designed to void waste and eliminate the toxicity of waste and unused materials.

Zero waste sounds like a pipe dream for many people, but over the next few years more and more manufacturers, businesses and industry professionals will take it to their heart as a great was to reduce the damage that waste is causing to our environment, as well as eradicate the cost of wasted materials and products.
