About the project
RE-MED arises from the need to reduce the environmental and health impacts due to failures in the management of construction and demolition waste (CDW). The project aims to transfer and experiment technologies enabling CDW to be transformed into resources for the construction and maintenance of roads. The project includes the construction of CDW recycling plants and aims to leverage the societal, environmental and digital transition of Mediterranean territories. A road section integrating CDW will be built and evaluated to demonstrate the concept. A full work program will be set up and shared on the RE-MED community collaborative platform. The project will implement structured training, scientific and public dissemination, methodological guides and draft standards, as well as models of efficient economy to integrate the dimension of sustainable development in the road sector. The project also intends to support the Tunisian and Lebanese environment Ministries in order to change the regulations to facilitate the use of at least 20% of recycled aggregates in road construction, and thus open up a construction waste market.
