Recycling Syria’s Rubble

Nour Madi from the American University of Beirut (AUB, Lebanon) took second prize. Her project is a GIS-based framework for recycling construction materials in Syria. The scope includes both war rubble and ordinary construction waste of the nation’s seven largest cities.

The project optimizes the locations of recycling facilities as well as their capacity and size. Costs of the recycling processes and transport routes are also considered. Based on her analysis, Nour Madi proposes six locations for the recycling plants.
