Construction and demolition waste is a major environmental concern in most of the Indian municipalities, as the CW generated in India is 150 MT and accounts for 35%–40% of the global C&D waste annually. India recycles only 1% of the C&D waste that is produced, according to Center for Science and Environment estimates.
Despite the regulations and schemes in India, onsite implementation of C&D waste management is difficult. C&D waste management is among the major sustainability deliverables, however, it is presumed to involve high capital investment and is characterized by a low collection rate, low recycling, and increased open dumping.

This webinar discusses the challenges in collection and transport, concerns about finances, complications in addressing pricing of recycled C&D waste products, collaboration between institute, industry and government & most importantly how from Indian context, there is a need for robust estimation and characterisation of C&D waste to design systems for material recovery.
