EC-Link Project Performed A Training Session On Solid Waste Management In Luoyang
EC-Link Project was called by Luoyang Municipality to perform a dedicated training on solid waste management. The meeting is to introduce the development of Solid Waste Management in Luoyang, to identify the fields for further cooperation between EC-LINK and Luoyang in Soil Waste Management sector.
Luoyang has developed a very efficient program meant to replace and recycle of any building materials coming from the demolition, to produce several building components as energy saving bricks and plasters, road screeds, artistic tiles and draining road pavements.
EC-Link project performed the training providing latest European experience in the management and reuse of construction waste; moreover, it was agreed to develop further cooperation in following areas:
EC-Link Project will also support the already existing willingness of Luoyang in establishing a network of stakeholders aimed to increase the recycling of building materials coming from demolitions and the productions of primary row recycled products/energy saving construction materials/finishing materials (e.g. tiles and roof tiles), to promote their market and to support the creation of a proper regulatory framework to raise recycling strategy at municipal level (through more tight obligation imposed to developers).
EC-Link project and Luoyang Municipality, starting from this training session, expressed the willingness to start a meaningful cooperation to support the implementation of the various initiatives above all in terms of waste management and financial support through the involvement of international financial institutions.

And that goes for real estate investment trusts, companies that own income-producing real estate, if they do not shift their investment strategies to address growing risks, industry experts say.
A 2018 report found that 35% of REIT properties have geographic exposure to climate hazards, including inland flooding, typhoons or hurricanes, and coastal flooding and elevated sea levels. The research evaluated 73,500 properties owned by 321 REITs.
