A REVIEW OF THE PROSPECTS FOR THE GREATER USE OF RECYCLED AND SECONDARY A GGREGATES IN CONSTRUCTION

This article reviews the possibility for the greater use of recycled aggregates or secondary materials in construction. The principal recycled materials are described briefly, and the main problems associated with their use are presented. These materials include: a) colliery spoil; b) china clay waste; c) slate wastes; d) pulverized- fuel ash; e) slags; f) demolition and construction wastes; and g) asphalt planings. Figures are provided for the current and potential annual use of each material. The advantages of lower cost and the disadvantages of the variability of their mechanical properties in comparison to that of high quality aggregate are discussed briefly.
