The Environmental Impact of Recycled Concrete

recycled aggregate production is about 5% of the total aggregates needed to supply the construction industry. As other industries, the transformation activities to produce concrete generate waste. The standards are mostly conservative and the amount of recycled concrete aggregates used normally does not exceed 20% in weight on coarse aggregates.
