Abstract: The Dutch government has laid down its objectives for prevention and reuse in the 'Implementation Plan for Demolition and Construction Wastes'. One of the objectives of this plan is that reuse in the year 2000 should reach approximately 90% and that no more than 10% of Demolition and Construction Waste should be landfilled or incinerated. In this context, reuse includes product reuse, material reuse or the beneficial application of wastes.
Product reuse is the basis for this research project, and aims to develop a decision support model, which will help to make a balanced deliberation between dismantling or demolishing a building.
Keywords: Dismantling, Sustainable development, Building waste, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Demolition and Construction Waste (DCW), Components, Elements, Technical environmental design.
