Portland cement production from fine fractions of concrete waste

S. Zhutovsky, A. Shishkin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The recycling of concrete can reduce the environmental impact of Portland cement production and concrete construction, and decrease the damping and landfilling of demolition waste. Currently, concrete recycling is widely used for aggregate extraction [1], though concrete fines which are a mix of aggregate and the hydrated cement paste are not a part of the recycling process [1]. Research efforts have been directed to the production of new Portland cement from recycled fines, but most research attempts run into problems [2, 3].
