Current Status of the Research on Construction and Demolition Waste Management


Objectives: This paper aims to systematically review the current studies related to the field of construction and demolition waste (CDW) management by examining the main peer reviewed journals from the year 2000 to 2015. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Documents used for the purpose of this review were retrieved from the online database SCI-Expanded version called the Web of Science, Thomson Reuters. These journals will be analysed based on the number of annually published papers, the scholars and institutions who have contributed, the data analysis methods utilized in the researches, and the topics covered in the studies. Findings: The review reveals that most data collection was carried out using the survey and case study method on the field of CDW management and the analyses are mainly discussed using the descriptive analysis approach. The two main topics that were most researched out of the six research areas in the CDW management field include the management of CDW and the recycling of CDW. The findings highlight the growing interest in the research of CDW management over the past few years. There is also evidence that developing countries including Malaysia are making great attempts in the research of CDW management. Application/Improvement: This research presented some valuable information beneficial to both academicians and practitioners. This work would assist researchers in understanding the major trends in the development of research on CDW management
