Framgångsfaktorer för ökad återvinning av mineralull från byggprojekt
Sammanfattning: Sustainability is getting more and more attention in the global debate, and construction is one of the sectors with the biggest impact on the environment. The construction process creates vast amounts of waste every year but the sector has started to take responsibility for the problems it creates. Up until now the focus has been on the big fractions, such as concrete and metals, which make out the biggest portion of the waste. Cost effective solutions are getting more important as certifications get more common and more value is put into the buildings environmental performance. In this context, mineral wool is an odd fraction that rarely get any attention in the debate and it is almost never presented in statistics, by neither corporations nor the government. As an inert product that doesn’t react chemically, it is therefore regarded as non-recyclable by important institutions. Huge amounts of energy are needed in the production of mineral wool and if we manage to increase the recycling, the fraction can be subject to great savings in energy. Retake and recycling is a complicated process where many actors with different interests has important rolls. This report seeks to understand the problems and barriers that exist in the context of retake and recycling of mineral wool from the building contractor’s perspective. The report also aims to give suggestions on how to overcome the barriers and how to increase the recycling of mineral wool. The barriers that were found in this research had mostly to with factors outside the direct control of the construction companies. To succeed they must put a lot of focus on the cooperation with waste contractor, who has a key role in the process.
