Construction waste platforms

Following the study on the 2024 Olympic Games logistics carried out in 2018, Apur has been continuing through 2019-2020 its work on setting up a circular economy for managing waste produced by building and public works construction (BTP).

Major transformations are underway throughout Grand Paris : the Grand Paris métro, the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, over 500 urban projects and ambitious plans to renovate the energy-efficiency of buildings. The production of waste on construction sites is becoming a serious issue if one is to avoid the saturation of existing waste disposal facilities, an increasing flow and congestion of traffic carrying materials and above all, to prevent the growing scarcity of certain materials such as natural aggregates.

In 2019, in a partnership context and in liaison with the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games agreement between Paris and Seine-Saint-Denis, Apur carried out a study on setting up a circular economy of construction waste (BTP) management alongside the City of Paris, the Plaine-Commune,
Est-Ensemble, Paris Terres d’Envol and Grand Paris Grand Est territories and the Department of Seine-Saint-Denis.

The aim is to identify land that is available to enable the development of reuse, recycling and all the ways and means for promoting the enhancement of the construction waste sector, be it durable or ephemeral, with the overall objective of constructing an efficient network throughout Grand Paris.

The study is organised around 4 main themes:

  • Identifying existing structures;
  • Defining and quantifying construction waste;
  • Identifying land;
  • A forward-looking, territorial network.
