Use of Recycled concrete Aggregate to Produce Concrete Masonry Blocks

Concrete—the most common construction material in the world—represents the main component of construction and demolition waste. The excessive extraction of virgin aggregate from Canadian lands and water bodies destroys the habitats of many species and affects the natural flow of streams in lakes and rivers. One solution to address the growing solid waste challenge and preserve natural aggregate resources from depletion is the adoption of large-scale recycling of concrete waste into aggregate.
