Abstract:
Concrete with recycled materials (CRMs) provide sustainability in several different ways. The simple act is the reduction of the amount of materials that must be landfilled. However, the production of portland cement, an essential constituent of concrete, leads to the release of significant amount of CO2, a greenhouse gas; one ton of portland cement clinker production is said to create approximately one ton of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Reuse of post-consumer wastes and industrial by-products in concrete is necessary to produce even greener concrete. Use of recycled glass and slag aggregates can reduce the use of manufactured portland cement clinker and, at the same time, produce concrete that is more durable.
