High-quality recycling of materials
Materials passport for Princess Beatrix locks complex
A ‘materials passport’ for a civil engineering structure is a data set that provides insight into the materials used for construction, the way in which these have been processed, and the possibilities for reuse during maintenance work and after the demolition or disassembly of the structure. The Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management has commissioned Witteveen+Bos and the contracting group ‘Sas van Vreeswijk’ to study which information (for decisionmaking purposes and otherwise) is needed to ensure high-quality materials recycling during the expansion and renovation of the Princess Beatrix locks complex, and where this information should be available in the construction chain. Registering the required object details in a ‘materials passport’ ensures that this information is kept on file, and facilitates high-quality recycling.
