Recycling of Construction Waste

DOI: 10.1016/s0166-1116(08)70406-0


Summary Although Britain is relatively rich in natural aggregate reserves, planning approvals to develop new quarries are running at about half the rate of aggregate extraction. This paper reports on a property study of crushed concrete and demolition debris with a view to using these materials in construction instead of natural aggregate. One of the objects of the research, on which this paper reports, was to accumulate data which would be a basis for the production of a British Standard for recycled materials in construction.
