Urban Mining in Parkstad: Building Circular Value Chains

Parkstad Limburg is a region in South-East Limburg, with over 255,000 inhabitants. The municipalities of Heerlen, Kerkrade, Landgraaf, Brunssum, Voerendaal, Simpelveld, and Beekdaelen together form Parkstad Limburg. Parkstad is embarking on a significant socio-economic and physical restructuring effort involving the demolition of 8,000 homes and the construction of 7,500 new ones. Through urban mining, this project dives deep into three potential circular value chains  (ceramic roof tiles, refurbishing ceiling panels, and reusing and fabricating wooden beams and frames) that can deliver real environmental and economic benefits by reusing materials from these processes.
