- On July 16, 2021, the Regulation introducing a Substitute Building Materials Regulation (framework regulation; Mantelverordnung) was passed. The Regulation enters into force on August 1, 2023, after a two-year transitional phase. The framework regulation provides for uniform national and legally binding regulations on the utilization of mineral waste. Its aim is to promote the circular economy and to improve the acceptance of substitute construction materials. This will help to reduce the use of primary construction materials and conserve natural resources. Fixed or mobile processing plants for mineral substitute construction materials are included in all of our construction projects. The introduction of the framework regulation will therefore have far-reaching effects on regulations and our construction processes in Germany. Within the upcoming two-year transition period, the necessary adjustments and changes will be made as part of a Group-wide project and employees will be informed
and receive the necessary training.
