Demolished Concrete, Fresh Aggregate


The rapid urbanization and industrialization of the world in the last few decades has led to the ever rising demand of construction materials especially aggregates. Mining of these aggregates has led to a strain on the environment and in serious ecological damage. Thus mining has been banned in some states by the government. The shortfall of construction aggregates is a serious problem and necessitates the use of other recycled aggregates as its replacement. Recycled aggregates are obtained from old demolished construction waste. Usually they are transported to a landfill site where they are disposed. The expansion of cities in the past decades has not only made landfill sites farther but also at the same time made the transportation of these aggregates costlier.
