The evolution of construction waste sorting on-site

Hongping Yuan, Weisheng Lu, Jane Jianli Hao
2013 Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews  
In Hong Kong, the inert portion can be deposited at public filling areas for land reclamation while the non-inert portion is disposed of at landfills.  ...  It was found that construction waste management (CWM) regulations have significantly enhanced on-site CWS in Hong Kong.  ...  For the non-inert waste generated in higher floors, it is handled and transported to the ground by refuse chutes or cranes in most of the cases.  ...

2020 Sustainability  
The assessment of end-of-life costs in the present work is developed by a case-based reasoning.  ...  Innovative designs, such as those taking place in nearly zero-energy buildings, need to tackle Life Cycle Cost, because reducing the impact of use can carry other collateral and unexpected costs.  ...  As the official energy bills were not available in most cases, the evaluation was based on the energy demand calculated.  ...
