A short note on recycled concrete aggregate

Title variants
Languages of publication
For any type of construction projects, concrete is one of the most important materials. But the continuous use of fresh concrete is not good for our environment. The demolition of a building may produce a huge amount of wastage products. If we can use this demolished concrete as recycled concrete instead of a certain amount of natural concrete, then we can save energy, cost, money and environment too. So, the exercise of recycled concrete aggregate protects the environment from different harmful effects and also considered as a cost effective material. This paper narrates the various productions and applications of recycled concrete aggregate in the construction industry. This paper also discusses the various properties of recycled aggregates and compares with the natural aggregates.
