The construction sector is of strategic importance for many countries across the world. It delivers the buildings and infrastructure needed by the rest of the economy and society. It generates about 9% of gross domestic product (GDP) in the European Union and provides 18 million direct jobs. The construction value chain includes a wide range of economic activities, going from the extraction of raw materials, the manufacturing and distribution of construction products up to the design, construction, management and control of construction works, their maintenance, renovation and demolition, as well as the recycling of construction and demolition waste.
Disaster & material management
At an earthquake, buildings, bridges, dams, factories, chimneys of factories and monuments collapse and the communication and power lines, sewer system and drinking water lines are damaged. These wastes block the roads, so the rescue and first-aid groups, related heavy duty machines can not reach the disaster areas easily. Also, due to the damage of the communication lines authorities can not obtain sound information about the extent of the disaster and give necessary orders to the related people because of the damage of the communication lines. The amount of the demolishing waste depends on the type of the area such as urban or rural area, intensity of the earthquake and the number of demolished buildings and facilities. When the amount of demolishing wastes is estimated, also the amount of the wastes generated during the repair and construction of wastes should be considered.
