Use of recycled brick as concrete aggregate

Ivana Kesegić, Dubravka Bjegović, Ivanka Netinger

Abstract

The paper starts with the assertion that the possibilities of reusing construction waste as raw material must definitely be examined if we are to ensure sustainable management of such waste. An overview of results gained during recent studies of recycled-brick, with the possibilities of reusing this material as concrete aggregate, is given. A survey of methods currently in place for the management and reuse of old bricks and tiles in Croatia is also presented, as such waste is dominantly represented in the composition of construction waste generated during demolition of masonry buildings.
