2007-10-10 Nebraska State Recycling Association on the use of recycled aggregates in infrastructure construction. The purpose of this study was to develop performance based standards for recycled aggregates and to write a generic specification for use of these materials in municipal, public works, and highway construction. In addition to the work
Despite a substantial increase in the use of recycled aggregates, it is likely that the major proportion of future aggregate demand will be supplied from primary sources because there are limitations on the availability of material to be recycled into aggregates and technical limi-tations in their use. Aggregates have a wide range of uses in construction
2000-2-4 Recycled Aggregates—Profitable Resource Conservation Aggregates are Required for Construction Projects Aggregates are composed of rock fragments that may be used in their natural state or after mechanical processing such as crushing, washing, and sizing. Natural aggregates consist of both sand and gravel, and crushed stone. Recycled aggregates
2015-9-2 Recycled Aggregates from Inert Waste Introduction The UK is fortunate in having an abundant supply of primary aggregates that can be sourced from numerous sites throughout the country. However, there is growing pressure on the industry to move towards more sustainable construction methods and reduce the consumption of primary aggregates by switching to recycled or secondary aggregates ...
2013-10-24 The use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) in concrete as partial and full replacements of natural coarse aggregate is growing interest in the construction industry, as it reduces the demand for virgin aggregate. In addition, the use of RCA leads to a possible solution to the environmental problem ...
2011-4-12 The use of recycled aggregates in the construction of the HWRC and access road has been maximised by the client insisting on the use of recycled materials. HCC wanted the project to be an example of how the council should work on future developments. The engineering consultant was involved at an early stage and tasked with designing recycled aggregates
