AG Ingenieurökologie - MAREX


Brief Description

The large cities in Vietnam have experienced a construction boom in recent years, which has led to a rapid increase in resource consumption and, consequently, to a rapid increase in the extraction of raw materials in the surrounding areas of the metropolitan areas. The joint project MAREX aimed to

  1. map the material flows in the construction materials industry in the capital Ha Noi and its surrounding area,
  2. determine the impacts on the environment as well as the resulting land use conflicts,
  3. identify technical solutions for reducing the environmental impacts, and
  4. network the actors in terms of better management of raw material extraction, processing and utilisation.

The empirical studies focused on Hoa Binh province, which is a focal point for the extraction of bulk raw materials for the construction industry such as gravel and sand, and on the metropolis of Ha Noi, from which most of the demand for raw materials originates.
