Bio-Aggregate Based Construction Materials for Sustainable Farm Buildings

This research aims in utilizing agriculture wastes in production of sustainable eco-friendly construction materials for farms building. The mechanical and durability performance of the proposed eco-friendly construction material exposed to the aggressive agriculture environment will be evaluated. The research will investigate the effects of different factors mainly related to physical properties of used wastes and binding materials. This leading-edge research on reusing/recycling agro-wastes in construction materials will allow IRDA to economically and sustainably transform such wastes into a high-value product. IRDA will lead the research in this area focusing on developing and innovating sustainable smart building materials for farm buildings and various construction applications, with an anticipated measurable impact on the Canadian specifications for concrete.
