Recycled Concrete

Definition: hardened concrete that has been processed for reuse, usually as aggregate.- ACI Concrete Terminology


The reason for recycling is the reduction of waste in order to protect nature against pollution, the increasing shortage of suitable dumping grounds, and to save energy and natural resources. Concrete debris is typically reclaimed as recycled aggregate (RCA). By recycling concrete, valuable landfill space and natural resources are preserved. This concept is part of the larger “sustainable construction” philosophy that seeks to minimize waste generation and encourage recycling in order to prevent adverse long-term environmental effects.
