The role of the construction materials industry in the circular economy – Impossible mission or a realistic future?

On an annual basis, every person leaves behind almost 560 kg of rubbish on average while exploiting the limited resources of the Earth at the expense of future generations. A solution to this problem may be offered by the circular economy model replacing the linear economy model arising during the first industrial revolution. In it, today’s products are at the same time the base materials of the future. In this model, the rubbish or by-product of one of the actors becomes base material or fuel for another actor operating in another industrial sector.

The first part of the publication elaborates on what circular economy is, what progress has been made and why it is in focus now. An answer is sought to the question of what challenges the building materials industry, more specifically, the cement and concrete industry will have to face if it is implemented, and what kind of regulatory environment will be needed in addition to sectorial efforts to ensure the success of the implementation.

Concrete Roundabout at Vecsés

Hungary’s first concrete roundabout

The first concrete roundabout in Hungary was opened to the public in November 2011. The intersection of Dózsa György street, Budai Nagy Antal street, Gyáli street and Széchenyi street has a daily traffic of nearly 6500 vehicles, justifying the use of concrete pavement, which is safe, resisting and durable.

The construction of a roundabout was also necessary from a safety point of view, as it provides an optimal solution to a traffic situation for decades, and it also offers an example to be followed in the future.
