WRAP's online tool analyses recycled content for about 500 specifications.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme has launched a new online tool, called the RC toolkit, to help construction professionals to increase the recycled content of materials.

The aim is to persuade specifiers to opt for greener materials, and the attraction is that they do not incur any extra cost.

At the moment the RC toolkit works for about 500 specifications in new build. WRAP intends to extend the product database progressively.
