Wallboard waste has great potential for recycling, even though most of it ends up in a landfill. In May 2014, a cross-industry collaboration of stakeholders, who recognized that there was an opportunity for more to be done, got together and launched the Building Product Ecosystem.


Through transparent material research and innovation, the BPE sought to focus on cradle-to-cradle recycling in a very challenging market.
