The second life of construction waste. Proposal to reuse recycled fine aggregate and residues of insulating materials

Katarzyna Kalinowska-Wichrowska , Carolina Piña Ramírez , Alejandra Vidales Barriguete


The paper presents the results of own research confirming the possibility of reusing a waste material: fine fraction from concrete recycling as a filler in sand lime products and residues of insulating materials (rockwool and fiberglass) and recycled sand using as a insulating materials. The compressive strength, bending, water absorption, surface hardness and structural research were carried out. The results show that the all of describing materials could be acceptable solution to reduce natural resources -natural sand (for example) or be a filler. Reuse of waste materials to new composites is expected in this world because of lack of natural resources
