-(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Advances in Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling. Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering” book from Elsevier Science and Technology has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

“Advances in Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling. Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineeriing

Advances in Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling: Management, Processing and Environmental Assessment is divided over three parts. Part One focuses on the management of construction and demolition waste, including estimation of quantities and the use of BIM and GIS tools. Part Two reviews the processing of recycled aggregates, along with the performance of concrete mixtures using different types of recycled aggregates. Part Three looks at the environmental assessment of non-hazardous waste.

This book will be a standard reference for civil engineers, structural engineers, architects and academic researchers working in the field of construction and demolition waste.

  • Summarizes key recent research in recycling and reusing concrete and demolition waste to reduce environmental impacts
  • Considers techniques for managing construction and demolition waste, including waste management plans, ways of estimating levels of waste, and the types and optimal location of waste recycling plants
  • Reviews key steps in handling construction and demolition waste
