New CDRA Document Outlines Steps to Develop End-Market for Recycled Products
Published: 23/11, 2020
The Construction & Demolition Recycling Association has released guidelines to be considered when creating an end-market for a waste material received at a recycling facility. Created by the CDRA’s End Markets Development Committee, “New Product Development From Construction/Demolition Debris” takes users through the steps for finding a home for a new material. Developed by professionals well-versed with managing waste streams within their own recycling plants, the document is part of CDRA’s efforts to respond to a huge C&D industry need to find end markets, as identified by a survey of attendees at C&D World 2019. The End Markets Development Committee was formed for that reason, and this is just one of its accomplishments.
Under the committee’s guidance, CDRA is conducting experiments with the University of Florida to develop an end-market for C&D wood and C&D fines, the results from which will be released in 2021. The guidelines are free to CDRA members and can be downloaded directly from www.cdrecycling.org.
