Masonry rubble for resource-conserving building construction - report has been published

To what extent is masonry rubble reclaimed from demolished buildings suitable for use in resource-conserving building construction? Can this material known as type 2 aggregate be processed to make R concrete with properties that are comparable to conventional concrete made with primary aggregates, and is this ecologically viable? The report for the German Federal Environmental Foundation answers these questions and many more.

The project was undertaken by the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Konstanz University of Applied Sciences in conjunction with ifeu and the IAB Institut für Angewandte Bauforschung Weimar gGmbH (Weimar Institute of Applied Construction Research).
