Project report on waste & recycled material in concrete technology

(North America)  —  Recycled-aggregate concrete containing fly ash is an example of construction material in harmony with this concept, whereby sustainable construction development is useful with satisfactory performance, in both safety and service of structures, at lower costs and with advantages over ordinary concrete.

This Report discussed the basis of which by-products to be use and recyclable materials in concrete which can be better results. Moreover, while using recycled materials some important properties of the hardened concrete such as ductility and durability can be better engineered.

Concrete is fundamentally made of aggregates glued by a cementitious materials paste, which is made of cementitious materials and water. Each one of these concrete primary constituents, to a different extent, has an environmental impact and gives rise to different sustainability issues. WHAT IS CONCRETE RECYCLING? Breaking, removing & crushing hardened concrete from an acceptable source. Old concrete pavements often are excellent sources of material for producing RCA.


Fly ash is the ash component of Coal liberated during combustion. Fly ash can be incorporated into Portland cement in one of the three ways. Fly ash can be used as a admixture or as replacement of Portland cement. Fly ash addition to Portland cement results in increased workability. In fly ash cement development of compressive strength is slow .At longer periods of curing Fly ash concrete develops higher strengths than the normal concrete. In this report finally explain by graph diagrams STRENGTH, PERMEABILITY OF FLY ASH CONCRETE, and pictures of some construction of buildings by using Fly ash. Finally report explains about Recycling of Waste Materials & by production for concrete technology.


In the coming future Recycling of Waste Materials & by production for concrete technology will achieve new heights, as attempts are already being made to use municipal refuse & waste oil as partial substitutes for production of cement clinker. We have to promote & development in the area of utilization of waste materials. Variability of the physical & chemical characteristics & availability at locations far removed from populations areas may inhibit the wide spread use of many types of wastes. Future work will have to be directed to study of the long term durability of concretes containing these materials.
