During the Branch meeting held on 19 October in Brussels, the ECDB members unanimously elected Pär Larshans, Sustainability Director at Ragn-Sells (SRI, Sweden) as ECDB President, accompanied by two Vice-Presidents, Giorgio Bressi, the Technical Director of ANPAR (Italy) and Christoph Althammer, Executive at Althammer Bau GmbH (BVSE, Germany). They also green-lighted Josef Aschl, Executive at SWIETELSKY Umwelt Technik GmbH (BVSE, Germany) and Hans Boer, Manager Mineraal at Attero (DWMA, the Netherlands), as the ECDB’s Executive Committee members.

EuRIC would like to congratulate each of the dedicated professionals who have taken up these vital roles. Their expertise and commitment to a circular economy in the construction sector will undoubtedly steer the recycling industry toward greater sustainability and innovation. The ECDB’s strong leadership comes at a crucial time, as it is imperative to address the growing demand and markets for recycled aggregates and other C&D recycling products in Europe, which contribute to achieving the EU's climate and environmental objectives.

Pär Larshans, ECDB President said:

”I am deeply honored to assume the leadership of our recently established construction and demolition branch, where our mission is to enable our industry to champion the transformation of what is currently discarded into valuable resources, fostering a positive environmental footprint.”
