Abstract
This investigation presents the work conducted to develop an inventory of best practices towards an efficient gypsum recycling value chain, within the framework of the Life+ GtoG project. The study is based on three pillars: the crucial indicators for the effectiveness of the recycling route, relevant results from the monitoring of a set of European pilot projects, and conclusions regarding the life cycle effects on carbon emissions of different levels of plasterboard recycling. These best practices would not only help to minimize the construction and demolition (C&D) waste sent to landfills, but also to mitigate primary mineral resource depletion.
