Barcelona Building Construmat will take place from 23 to 26 May 2017 in the Gran Via venue of Fira Barcelona. This industry event includes every single construction sector, an international benchmark of innovation and a forum for knowledge and business. It is structured into 4 Arenas: Industry, Future, Talks and Meetings.

This year, the Talks Arena will include a congress on innovation, one on social housing, and a third one on circular economy. The Circular Economy Congress will take place on Friday 26 May. A keynote speech on EU policy in circular economy and the construction sector will open the congress, followed by a presentation of innovative circular economy projects. The session will cover Urban Circular Economy projects; Industrial symbiosis in the construction sector; the FISSAC project; Innovative solutions for recovering raw materials from construction and demolition waste; the HISER Project; and a model for using recycled plastics in housing construction. Finally, the morning will end with a round table discussion on how to incorporate the principles of the circular economy in the construction sector.
