[PDF] ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF CONCRETE

This paper presents the results of a research study on the environmental impact produced by the recycling of concrete originating from construction and demolition waste (CDW). The aim of the study was to implement a life cycle inventory (LCI) of the concrete recycling phases. It was carried out in Spain, with data collected from the various recycling processes involved in the mobile crushing ...
