Paper Title:
Reuse of Building Construction and Demolition Waste, a Xi’an Example
  Abstract

In China, the construction industry has been developing rapidly over the past decades, at the same time, generating a huge amount of construction and demolition waste (CDW). The stream of CDW must be dealt with special attention, at least because of the shortage of landfill space for disposal and the need of sustainable development. This paper presents solutions to manage and control major type of building CDW in a technically feasible and economically efficient manner, with an example of Xi’an City. Recommendations are made in order to promote sustainable CDW management in practice.
