Recycling in building construction by testing demolition material and deriving quality criteria

The project focuses on the elimination of obstacles that are often brought up against recycled concrete in building construction  in practice. Material investigations and technical tests of characteristic values were carried out on original type 2 recycled concretes from two qualified processing companies. The investigations exceeded the previous status of the regulations. In addition, the recycled concretes were tested for their contribution to environmental protection with use of ecological data.
