Eurogypsum organised the 5th European Gypsum Recyclers Forum on 26 May 2021 in the form of an online webinar, including presentations by institution and industry representatives and a moderated discussion on circularity in construction and the way towards increased recycling of gypsum. More than 70 participants attended the webinar, which was moderated by Chris Davies (Rud Pedersen Public Affairs).

Based on the discussions held at the Forum, Eurogypsum has prepared a series of recommendations for EU and national policymakers, as well as gypsum recycling and processing operators, to increase the actual recycling of gypsum and promote circularity in the construction ecosystem:

  • Promote demand for recycled content
  • Facilitate a larger market offer for recycled content
  • Support transformational changes in the construction ecosystem
  • Avoid non-circular options
