Urban Mining Reaps Valuable Harvest

The Dutch company New Horizon works to promote a circular approach to the reuse of resources tied up in existing buildings. Facilitating the urban mining of valuable resources, the company creates value from waste streams released during demolition. It wants to transform the use of the terms “demolish” and “waste” to “dismantling” and “raw materials.” New Horizon carries the entire risk for its clients during the demolition process, making it more attractive for developers to reuse materials. Actively promoting and creating demand for raw materials still present in buildings, the company also guarantees a destination for these materials
