Abstract: Management of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) in Portugal is not yet a
primary issue. Different methods have been used by the various entities involved to assess
amounts of CDW thus leading to different published results.
A wide range research programme is being carried out on CDW and in particular, a study
to characterize CDW in the Porto urban region.
In this paper, after a short presentation of the Porto urban area, the waste policy, including
situation of CDW practices and the possible estimation of quantities in the region are
presented. Finally some examples of three recent case studies are discussed.
