Worldwide, the construction industry produces a tremendous amount of C&D debris every year, with one recent study estimating production of such waste will reach 2.2 billion tons by 2025.
Habitat for Humanity, supported by SeaFreight Labs, is seeking to address the roadblocks hindering the widespread recycling and use of C&D waste in construction. This Challenge focuses on the first steps of utilizing C&D waste – estimation and segregation of waste material and the initial logistics of waste utilization in the construction supply chain – and the Seeker is soliciting innovative ideas and concepts to address a wide range of topics within these first steps. There exists a huge potential to develop economically viable and revenue-generating businesses in the recycling of C&D waste for reuse in the construction industry and it is Habitat for Humanity’s hope that the results of this Challenge will help them foster growth and spur interest and innovation in this area, ultimately reducing natural resource use and keeping large volumes of C&D waste from entering the environment.
