SECONDARY BUILDING MATERIALS

The use of secondary building materials in the road construction and hydraulic engineering sector has risen sharply in recent years. This is due in part to progressive laws and regulations, which have led to the Dutch Soil Quality Decree. As a consequence of this, clients are assured of good quality building materials for an attractive price. The Netherlands is a densely populated country with a relatively small land mass. Large quantities of waste are produced, and a lot of raw materials are needed for construction and the economy. More restrictions on dumping waste are being introduced, which creates a need for innovative applications. These days, there is actually no such thing as waste – we now have ‘raw materials’. Since there are barely any natural resources left in the Netherlands, the waste can be put to good use as a secondary raw material, which reduces the need for primary resources. The Netherlands is a world frontrunner in this area.
