China Construction and Demolition Waste Industry Market Report
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the rapid development and urbanization in China has resulted in tens or even hundreds of millions of tons of Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste produced each year.
The boom in urban real estate has led to a soaring C&D waste disposal issue. Since 2017, the Chinese government has continuously issued relevant policies, regulations and guidance on C&D waste disposal in order to promote the development of C&D waste reduction and reuse.
In May 2020, the Guiding Opinions on Promoting C&D Waste Reduction explicitly stipulated that by the end of 2020, a working mechanism for the reduction in construction waste should be established in all regions of the country; By the end of 2025, all regions shall discharge no more than 300 tons of C&D waste (excluding dregs and mud) per 10,000 square meters of building space during building construction.
According to statistics, China’s C&D waste accounts for more than 40% of the total municipal solid waste. As China’s urbanization has continued to accelerate, the amount of C&D waste produced in China increased sharply from 0.470 to 3.037 billion tons from 2006 to 2020. It is predicted that the amount of C&D waste to be disposed of will reach 3.209 billion tons in 2021 and is expected to exceed 4 billion tons in 2026.
To help develop the recycling industry and maximize the utilization of C&D wastes, Chinese government has provided tax incentives for the utilization of C&D wastes. Moreover, many local governments are giving strong support to C&D wastes utilization. The generation of C&D wastes in China is large but the utilization rate is low. If the utilization rate in China can reach the level of developed countries, it will create a market of trillions of yuan.
