The traditional disposal of waste in landfill sites is causing serious environmental concerns due to the amount of hectares consumed by this method and the waste of resources which results from not being proactive in effective recycling. The construction industry, for example, contributes approximately 108mt of the total 335mt of waste annually produced in the United Kingdom of which 50-80% could be reusable or recyclable. Construction waste is composed of at least 1mt of plasterboard waste which has resulted in serious problems because of the emission of hydrogen sulphide gas which is odorous and causes a health hazard to people living near disposal sites. Consequently, this material can only be disposed of in licensed and special designed sites. Plasterboard can be recycled and some countries, for example Japan, Canada, United States and, recently, the United Kingdom, are using this technology to obviate the issue of landfill. This paper outlines knowledge hub using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) linked to Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems for providing auditing and monitoring systems for environmental recycling and/or licensed disposal of plasterboard waste.
