Abstract
Quality secondary materials are imperative to promote the recycling of post-consumer waste. Existing specifications for recycled gypsum are country-specific and even company-specific. In order to improve the way in which gypsum waste is treated, European guidelines on recycled gypsum quality criteria have been outlined in the framework of the European Life+ Gypsum to Gypsum project ?From Production to Recycling: a Circular Economy for the European Gypsum Industry with the Demolition and Recycling Industry?. Such guidelines provide the basis for this study. During the GtoG project, deconstruction, gypsum recycling and plasterboard manufacturing processes were monitored in distinct European contexts. Business-as-usual gypsum feedstock and recycled gypsum were tested. The aim of the present study is to analyse the results obtained on relevant parameters that characterize gypsum as a raw material (e.g. particle size, free moisture, purity). Recycled gypsum samples are compared to business-as-usual gypsum samples, while at the same time outlining the implications of parameters that differ from the GtoG guidelines.
