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.

Key Features

  • Discusses alternative binding materials for recycled aggregate
  • Covers how to use concrete with recycled aggregates, along with the advantages and disadvantages
  • Provides guidance on using recycled concrete aggregates, designing mixtures and how to best produce RCAs


Civil, construction and structural engineers – academia (postgrad, instructors) and industry. Recycle industry managers, structural designers, architects, contractors and builders
