Abstract

Urban ecosystems, in their complexity, like living organisms, have their own metabolism, whose functioning is linked to the presence of input and output streams. These metabolic flows define the interconnection of different life cycle phases and determine the presence of wasted landscapes, i.e. portion of territory waiting for the activation of regeneration actions. The present paper focuses on the abandoned industrial areas that characterize a portion of the Metropolitan Area of Naples, defining a spatial identification methodology and connecting them to the production of Construction and Demolition Waste, in a multi-scale perspective.
