The new revision of the End of Waste Regulation for inert waste from construction and demolition activities and other inert waste of mineral origin, which repeals and replaces the current DM 152/22 and will effectively enter into force in 2025, will introduce important novelties in the C&D waste recovery sector. Operators have been waiting for a long time for the resolution of at least some of the operational issues (the way recycled materials are stored, the management of small quantities of asbestos cement fragments in aggregates) that they have to face on a daily basis and which they hoped would find an answer in the End of Waste Regulation published in 2022 and corrected this year, but this has not been the case. Against some significant improvements (e.g. the limits on eluate for sulphates and chlorides and the introduction of the technical standards of compliance and suitability), environmental tests were also introduced on the solid aggregate matrix, which could create barriers to the recovery of C&D waste and/or limit its uses and market. Now the operators are relying on the monitoring period to improve the situation that has arisen and that needs to continue the fruitful discussion with the Ministry for the Environment and Energy Security and its technical bodies, which started when the first changes were needed.

The seminar is intended to encourage discussion between the authorities and the entire recovery chain in order to accelerate the application of the circular economy in the construction sector.
