Description

Concrete with recycled materials (CRMs) provides 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. The presentations included in this course will explore the use of recycled glass and reclaimed asphalt pavement as a partial replacement to portland cement and for its ability to produce durable concrete.
