Gypsum to Gypsum (GtoG) Project – Green build NEWS

Led by Eurogypsum, the Gypsum to Gypsum (GtoG) Project has identified the plasterboard demolition waste market as the major obstacle to creating a circular economy for the gypsum industry. Most buildings are demolished rather than dismantled in the majority of European member states, resulting in unsegregated waste going to landfill with no opportunity to recover recyclable materials such as plasterboard waste. The GtoG Project’s ultimate objectives include establishing a European Handbook of best practices for controlled deconstruction of gypsum systems, a European specification for recycled gypsum, and a recycling target for gypsum waste.
