...The book provides a useful overview of the state-of-the-art of the use of waste materials in construction and will help the scientist and policy-maker to analyse the future needs of the field and to assess global opportunities. This book will contribute to the understanding of environmental problems concerning the re-use of 'waste' materials in construction, and hopefully to a wider acceptance of the use of such materials to reduce the environmental impact in a world that is increasing its resource appetite daily. It will especially help the technical understanding of the characteristics of the 'wastes' and the construction materials. I recommend this book for those readers interested in the state-of-the-art knowledge on resource re-use in the construction industry. Some of the lessons learned presented in a few papers may also provide important lessons for other areas to improve resource efficiency...
