Plastics in construction (Part 2)

May 22, 2024

KV Business School, Sihlpostgasse 2, 8004 Zurich

Follow-up event to cycleworks - Plastics in construction part 1 (participation is possible separately).


cycleworks serves as an exchange platform to create an in-depth and focused understanding of a system together with various stakeholders, to identify problems and to actively think about concrete solutions and their implementation.

The aim of the cycleworks- plastics in construction series is to involve stakeholders along the entire value chain in the construction industry: Clients, planners, producers, contractors, dismantlers and recyclers as well as consultants and regulators - everyone is welcome and only together can we find practicable solutions.

This series currently consists of two consecutive meetings. In the first exchange, we started with a focus on the topics of recycling and regulations and enforcement. We have derived the following five key topics from the discussions and input received at this event. We would like to use the cycleworks series and together

  • Draw up an information sheet "Recycling potential of materials / components",
  • tackle the implementation of separate collection dismantling NOW,
  • set up a pilot project / test construction site,
  • Develop Design for Recycling / Circularity guidelines and/or
  • formulate a "wish list" for the authorities at national and cantonal level.

During the 2nd exchange, these ideas are to be expanded and it will be determined together how they can be pursued further. There will also be time to discuss further ideas and generally exchange ideas with the other participants.


At the end, the participants receive a "factsheet" prepared by realcycle with the most important findings from cycleworks.

Background information and further details can be found in the project cycleworks - Plastics in construction.
