Lightweight concrete with recycled ground expanded

Green Roads: Paving the Way With Recycled Tires

Tires can be recycled into other products. Many are ground into crumb rubber for use in paving projects or shredded into a lightweight fill for use in other civil engineering projects. There are many other eco-friendly products made from recycled tires. Go to CalRecycle's Tire Management Homepage for

Recycled waste glass as aggregate for lightweight concrete

A granulated porous recycled waste glass (RWG), namely Poraver, derived from the differential separation of municipal solid waste, was used as aggregate in concrete formulations. On account of the intrinsically highly porous cellular structure of the reference materials, the concrete structures appeared particularly light and refractory to

Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs

Insulating concrete forms systems can also contain a decent amount of recycled materials. Concrete can be made using supplementary cementing materials like fly ash or slag to replace a portion of the cement. Aggregate can be recycled (crushed concrete) to reduce the need for aggregate. Most steel for reinforcement is recycled.
