The concept of circular economy is becoming increasingly important in the construction sector. Opposing the classic linear economy model (extract, produce, consume, throw away), this concept is based on seven main pillars: ecodesign (minimizing environmental impacts from the development of a product), industrial ecology (organization that optimizes the use of resources), economy of functionality, reuse, repair, reuse and finally recycling.
