The report contains a study of waste materials and by-products that can be used in road construction. It is presented in four sections. Section A contains general considerations regarding the use of these materials and puts forward arguments for and against their use. Section B includes a general inventory of the materials as used in member countries for road construction and a general framework for materials testing is put forward. Section C is divided into five parts - mining and quarry, metallurgical, industrial, municipal, agricultural and forestry wastes and by-products - and discusses in detail over twenty major types of waste or by-product, their origin or production, their main characteristics, their present or potential uses, and, if required, the research needed to promote or develop their use. Section D gives an overall review of the economic, environmental and energy considerations and highlights the group's conclusions and recommendations regarding the use of the various materials examined in Section C. /Author/TRRL/
