The rate of construction waste recycling and reutilization has reached to more than 90% in the EU, USA, Japan, Korea and other countries currently. However, the “Twelfth Five–Year Comprehensive Utilization of Resources Guidance” issued by National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) have proposed the target that the construction waste reutilization in large and medium-sized cities would reach 30% in 2015. In China, there aren’t obstacles in the field of technique in construction waste recycling and reutilization, while lack of effective incentive policies and regulatory measures is the main bottleneck of hindering the construction waste recycling and reutilization. In order to implement one of the ten key tasks of “promote the construction of waste resource utilization” proposed by“Green Building Program of Action” (General Office of the State Council  No. 1), carry out the implementation of centralized treatment and grading use of construction waste. Speed up research and development promotion on the construction waste recycling technology and equipment. Establish technical standards of the construction waste comprehensive utilization. Take construction waste recycling demonstration project and make research on the establishment of construction waste recycled products labeling system. It needs guidance and supervision of government in the early promotion stage of construction waste recycling and reutilization. However, there is a lack of goal planning, supervision and management policies and economic incentive measures for the construction waste recycling and reutilization at the central government in China. It is urgent to carry out researches in this area.
This project analyzed the construction waste recycling and reutilization situation at home and abroad, which included laws and regulations, favored policy, supervision mechanisms, technical system and so on, and then it was made clear the gap and problems between China and foreign countries. Through establishing the production amount accounting model of construction waste in China, the project realized the accounting of production amount of every year, the total amount, and the forecasting amount in 2020. Considering the different stage of construction waste production, transportation, reutilization and product utilization, the project analyzed the role mechanism of different agents in the industry chain of construction waste recycling and reutilization. On the basis of these, the project proposed the general and staged objectives for construction waste recycling and reutilization in the next several years. According to the different production fields of construction waste, decompose the general objectives, propose the policy developing route map till 2020. In the end, the entire research results were presented in the form of the policy suggestions for Chinese government including management policy, economic support policy and policy implementation plan.
