Abstract: In the present framework of sustainable construction, management of construction and demolition (C&D) debris is fundamental, and its correct development requires a previous estimation of the precise quantities and detailed composition of C&D debris. Once these data are known, current strategies based on reducing, reusing, recycling and revaluating ought to be applied. A procedure has been developed in order to obtain this information in any territory, starting from the data of a particular territory: new construction surface, rehabilitation surface and demolition surface (estimated from the existing data for the last years), and from the construction and demolition (C&D) debris produced at each building work type (obtained from recent construction works or architectural projects of old buildings).
The developed method enables determination of a medium-term estimate of these data, and has been applied specifically to Galicia territory (in detail to each of its counties) and has been generalized to Spain disaggregating data by Autonomous Communities.
