Abstract

This Chapter, introduces the reader to the legislative and supply chain issues surrounding the re-use of materials with regard to the construction industry. Sustainability is defined and material life cycle phases are identified. Key legislative issues are defined that control waste in the environment. Supply chain problems are considered as potential barriers to the use of re-cycled materials. Two case studies are examined that show financial incentives for material re-use and a green supply chain management system is recommended for future work.
