Metals for buildings - Essential & fully recyclable

In its six chapters, the publication addresses the unique attributes of metal building products and their inherent value for future generations, including end-of-life recycling in all studies.

Launched in June 2011, METALS FOR BUILDINGS – of which European Copper Institute is a member – calls on EU legislators to address the unique attributes of metal building products and their inherent value for future generations.

“Building construction is an integral part of the modern economy and well-being of society. Metals are essential for delivering significant benefits in the form of the structure and the performance of a sustainable building,” says Nigel Cotton of ECI. “This publication demonstrates the importance of metals in use in the built environment, the recycling loop and in resource productivity.”
