When it comes to sustainable building, the construction industry has become the focus of a lot of attention. After all, this sector is responsible for around 50% of raw material extraction and, in the EU alone, 35% of waste generation.
REGUPOL products contain an up to 95% proportion of recycled materials and so can help responsible builders achieve sustainable projects. But it’s not just about these products containing a high proportion of recycled material, their durability is also particularly important to us. Running tracks, for instance, can then be renewed after many years of use without having to dispose of them completely, or impact sound insulation underlays can be cut away cleanly when buildings are demolished and returned to REGUPOL for re-use. Specially developed processes help to enable the reuse of sports hall floors and thus create high-quality, functional sports flooring once again.
Population growth and resource scarcity have intensified the run on raw materials. Their extraction and processing is an enormous burden on our environment and climate, resulting in an overall increase in energy consumption and consequently in CO2 emissions. The major advantages of the circular economy is that it reduces the pressure on the environment, increases the security of raw materials supply, improves competitiveness and promotes innovation. The circular economy shows consumers how they can benefit from longer-lasting and more innovative products that, in the long term, help them save money and improve their quality of life.
