Application of recycled concrete aggregates containing waste glass powder/suspension and bottom ash as a cement component in concrete
The growing environmental concerns and the increasing scarcity of landfills encourage the recycling of industrial wastes and adopting environrentally friendly practices by rational usage of natural resources. The production of concrete with recycled aggregate and reduced cement volume is the most desirable form of achieving a closed life cycle as an ecological constructional material. This paper describes results of a study undertaken to examine the influence of recycled aggregates obtained from manually crushed concrete specimens (which already had Portland cement replacement of 30% by mass with waste glass powder/suspension and coat/wood bottom ashes) on the properties of the concrete with finely ground waste glass as Portland cement component.
