Performance of recycled waste glass sand as partial

The aim of this research is to utilize recycled waste glass effectively as a partial replacement for the sand in concrete. A series of tests were conducted to determine the properties of the constituents, fresh concrete, and hardened concrete including its durability characteristics to investigate the suitability of using recycled waste glass sand (RGS) in concrete.

Waste Glass in Concrete; Pros and Cons Concrete

2019-12-14  Although glass is a material that can be recycled, just 34% of waste glass has been recycled. The main reason why collected mix-color waste glass isn’t recycled is due to its chemical composition. Typically, glass containers consist of sand, soda ash, limestone and cullet. Sand is glass’s main component and is its source of silica.

Recycling old glass into better concrete

[PDF] Recycled Glass Concrete: Coarse and Fine

2018-3-1  Conventional concrete aggregate consists of sand (fine aggregate) and various sizes and shapes of gravel or stones (coarse aggregate). However, there is a growing interest in substituting alternative aggregate materials, largely as a potential use for recycled materials. While there is significant research on many different materials for aggregate substitutes such as granulated coal ash, blast

From waste glass to stronger concrete The Green List

2019-6-12  This ability to turn waste or recycled glass into a sturdy and waterproof material “makes good economic sense,” says Dr Riyadh Al-Ameri, senior engineering lecturer. “We have found that substituting sand with ground recycled glass makes the polymer concrete stronger and is a sustainable use of one of the major types of recyclables in the

ACT 'paving the way' with recycled glass sand

2020-8-5  “Recycled glass sand is an amazing product that has the same consistency and texture of bedding sand but, most importantly, is cost effective, great for the environment and safe for our people at Icon Water to use,” he said. Mr Steel said he hoped recycled sand would also be used for a range of other infrastructure projects in the near future.

How we recycle glass to create sand for our roads

Glass Recycling. Through our MRF, we recover glass and then crush it to produce a glass sand. Some of this glass sand is sent to Blakebrook Quarry where it is mixed with other materials and turned into road base. Glass sand is also used in drainage works and pipe bedding, and is a cost effective, sustainable alternative to metal dust and sand.
