This paper will extrapolate the EMF's ReSOLVE frameworks through the context of three examples in vastly different formats.
Australian governments have a major opportunity to avoid a looming waste crisis and embrace energy recovery as a way of managing our waste and creating baseload power in the process. This report outlines a series of key recommendations required to support the roll out of...
The strategy makes use of an adapted version of British economist Kate Raworth's "doughnut model". The model describes how societies and businesses can contribute to economic development while still respecting the limits of the planet and the community.
To date, the quantitative literature on the employment impacts of the circular economy is still scarce. This study is the first of its kind to review the available studies on this increasingly important policy issue.
In this paper, a circular-economy framework is applied to the prefabricated building sector to explore the environmental advantages of prefabrication in terms of reduction, reusability, adaptability, and recyclability of its components. A qualitative approach is used to revisit the design, construction, and demolition stages of...
This research investigates the possibility of extending BIM functionalities to support deconstruction (demolition) processes in alignment with Lean Principles. Based on the existing interaction matrix between BIM functionalities and Lean Principles and its subsequent extensions, the synergies between BIM and Lean are explored from a...
