  • 3. The Environmental Impacts of Aggregate Extraction

    Aggregate is mined from the earth, either dug out of pits or blasted out of quarries. This process has many significant environmental impacts. Creating the pits or quarries requires the removal of virtually all natural vegetation, top soil and subsoil to reach the aggregate underneath.

  • Recycled Aggregates from Construction Demolition Wastes

    Standardization of Construction Demolition Waste AggregatePreparation of Construction and Demolition Waste AggregatesComposition of Construction and Demolition AggregatesKey Characteristics of Recycled Aggregates from Construction Demolition WasteThe incorporation of demolition waste material as an aggregate in the concrete mix requires standardization similar to that compared to the natural aggregates. This is because the concrete mix almost composes 75% of the aggregates. The construction and demolition waste aggregates are classified by BS 8500 (2002). The code classifies this into two types as: 1. Recycled Concrete Aggregates (RCA) 2. Recycled Aggregates (RSee more on theconstructor
