Fact sheet “100% recycling”
14 December 2020
The topic of the third fact sheet is 100% recycling.
“Concrete is made with local raw materials and is 100% recyclable. Concrete having reached the end of its life can be crushed to provide aggregates – sand and stones – for use in new concrete or in other cement-bound or unbound applications such as road bases. In all cases natural resources are saved.
Concrete mixes for road construction can accommodate low carbon cement types using secondary materials (fly ash, slag) recycled from other industries, resulting in equal performances.”
