The paper tackles a classical topic of location theory, as the Weber theory of industrial location within a modern framework of building construction and its consideration into the circular economy debate. Starting from a research project involving universities, construction and recycling enterprises and public bodies in Sardinia Island (Italy), the authors propose a model of industrial location that, starting from the assumption of the classical Weberian model, consider it both in a theoretical fashion and applying it to a real-world case study. The project of the new football stadium of Cagliari involves the demolition of the existing stadium, which will represent a source of ‘secondary’ raw materials for the realization of the new sport facility. The authors discuss about the ‘best’ locations for concrete factories, according to different scenarios, considering the insertion of a new ‘material source’ in the circular economy concept.

Abstract

The paper tackles a classical topic of location theory, as the Weber theory of industrial location within a modern framework of building construction and its consideration into the circular economy debate. Starting from a research project involving universities, construction and recycling enterprises and public bodies in Sardinia Island (Italy), the authors propose a model of industrial location that, starting from the assumption of the classical Weberian model, consider it both in a theoretical fashion and applying it to a real-world case study. The project of the new football stadium of Cagliari involves the demolition of the existing stadium, which will represent a source of ‘secondary’ raw materials for the realization of the new sport facility. The authors discuss about the ‘best’ locations for concrete factories, according to different scenarios, considering the insertion of a new ‘material source’ in the circular economy concept.
