Recycled Concrete: Technologies and Performance presents the latest technologies that can be applied to produce high and consistent quality recycled aggregate for use in structural concrete, and in alternative binders like Geopolymer and other types of concrete. The book discusses the lifecycle assessment of implementing sustainable construction technologies and evaluates the environmental impacts of recycled concrete in construction applications. It covers their use in the production of durable recycled concrete, their reduced environmental impact, quality improvement techniques, and more, making it valuable and relevant for civil and structural engineers, recycle industry managers, ready-mix and precast concrete producers and researchers.
