The built environment is the biggest producer of material waste in The Netherlands. A big part of the materials are extracted from demolishing projects and end up at low-end channels such as waste disposal companies.
Repurpose provides contractors access to a shared network of quality distribution channels to increase the sale of materials from the building site. The reuse of materials results in a decrease of new raw materials and less CO2 emissions.
Team Members: Bas Slager (Building engineering, BBE), Thomas van der Veen (Building engineering, BBE) and Mark van Ginkel (Building engineering, BBE).
