A major fraction of building materials is transformed into waste at the end of the building life cycle. For sustainability reasons, it is of importance to maintain or frequently recycle urban stocks, and in consequence to minimize the use of primary resources, wherefore a Material Passport (MP) represents an important support-tool. A MP is a design optimization tool, an inventory of all materials embedded in a building and an evaluation of the recyclability of materials. In this paper, the proof of concept of the MP is demonstrated on a use case, which is a residential building, whereby a variant in timber and a variant in concrete construction are evaluated. Results show that the recyclability of the concrete variant is better; however, concrete leads to more waste, due to its significantly higher mass in comparison with timber.
A MP shows large potentials in terms of optimization of recyclability and plays a crucial role as an inventory of the existing stocks.
