Sustainable and Innovative Material Management for the Construction in Cities, SIMM-CCities

Svedberg, B., Meurman F., 2014

Large quantities of inert materials and aggregates are required in construction activities in urban regions. These material flows put a strong pressure on logistical systems, city planning, infrastructure and the surrounding environment.

The aggregate supply chain involves a number of different and diverse stakeholders that may have many, potentially, conflicting societal, commercial and environmental goals. The overall need and ambitions to reduce the environmental impact from construction industry and lower its use of public resources.

The simm-ccities project has been performed through a series of working group meetings and a final conference, open to public.
