Increasing attention is being paid to construction material recycling – partly because it can help combat raw material scarcity and the release of CO2. At this 5th International Conference on Construction Materials Recycling, international experts will address the pressing issues surrounding the recycling of construction and demolition waste. Topics will include raw material shortages, mortar and concrete products, recycling and CO2 emissions, treatment techniques, and thermal recycling of construction and demolition waste. Supplemented by the presentation of current case studies.
