Abstract: In recent years, thanks to technological developments, the variety of building materials used in the building sector is increasing. Increasing the diversity of materials expands the usage areas of new materials in construction activities. Building materials, which are the main source of the building production process, have environmental impacts during in the period from the production stage to the use stage. The greatest damage to the environment by building materials is the generation of construction and demolition(C&D) waste. C&D wastes are composed of building materials and components resulting from construction material production, construction, renovation, repair and demolition activities of buildings. Today, C&D wastes which are one of the most important environmental problems emerge at every stage of the building production process and adversely affect human and environmental health. The providing reuse or recycling of building materials is important in terms of reducing C&D wastes. Material properties should be well known and sustainable building materials with minimum environmental impact should be used in order to reduce environmental problems caused by building production. In this study; the reuse and recycling potentials of the fibrecement board, which is one of the most frequently used building materials in the building sector recently, have been investigated in the production and construction phases. Within the scope of the study; waste management in the production phase, reuse and recycling of the material has been researched in the fibrecement board production facility. In this context; face to face interviews were made with the facility official about the production process of the material and the production phase was photographed in the production facility. Interviews were held with material sales offices and construction supervisors in order to determine the recovery opportunities of the material in the construction phase. According to the study; fibrecement board is a building material that has the potential to reuse and recycling during the production and construction phases. It has been concluded that the fibrecement can be recovered at other stages due to the fact that it has more reuse and recycling opportunities especially in the production process and it is a material that can be used in several parts of building does not harm the environment and human health.
