In developing countries, construction and demolition waste (CDW) is disposed to landfill, causing social, environmental, and economic crises. In these nations, CDW exponentially increase due to their rapid economic growth, industrialization, and urbanization. This paper aims to examine the possibility of recycling concrete waste for production of new concrete in Ethiopia.

produced more than billion t of construction aggregates in 1998. Concrete Recycling Product The bulk of the aggregates recycled from concrete—an estimated 68 percent—is used as road base. The remainder is used for new concrete mixes (6 percent), asphalt hot mixes (9 percent), highvalue riprap (3
The use of recycled and secondary materials in the GB aggregates market, which for the year to 31st December 2015 was 225 million tonnes (mt), has increased rapidly rising from 30 mt pa in 1990 to over 63 mt in 2015. Over that period the share of the aggregates market supplied from recycled and secondary sources has risen from 10% to 28%.

water from freshly exposed crushed concrete surfaces and the subsequent precipitation of calcium carbonate as the dissolved calcium hydroxide reacts with atmospheric carbon dioxide. Therefore, all recycled concrete aggregates that are exposed to water have the potential to produce precipitate, regardless of the product gradation.
Fig. 2 – 20 to 40 mm recycled aggregate. Advantages of Recycled Aggregate: Reduces the amount of aggregates to be created, hence less evacuation of natural resources. While being crushed into smaller particles a large amount of carbon dioxide is absorbed. This .
If good quality aggregate (obtained by crushing higher strength class concrete as in this case) is used for the production of new concrete, the recycled aggregate has no influence on the compressive strength, regardless of the replacement ratio of natural coarse aggregate with recycled aggregate.
replace natural aggregates in road construction and in concrete production. The main subjects of this paper are the grades of the recycled rubble aggregates and the rules to be followed in order to obtain satisfactory performances from Recycled Aggregate Concrete .
The production of raw materials used in construction and the generation of construction and demolition waste (CDW) are key environmental issues in the construction industry. Portland cement and concrete are used extensively in the construction sector. Processing of CDW to produce recycled gypsum cement and recycled aggregates (RA) and their use in the production of structural and non ...

It should be noted that aggregates amount to about 84 6070% of the total mass of concrete, and replacing natural aggregates either partially or
recycled aggregate resulted in 43% savings in the cost of coarse aggregates and 9% savings in the cost of concrete. KEY WORDS recycled aggregates, density, compressive strength, split tensile strength, ﬂ exural strength, modulus of elasticity

Recycled aggregates are the materials for the future. The application of recycled aggregate has been started in many construction projects in many countries. Many countries are giving many infrastructural laws relaxation for increase the use of recycled aggregate. Basic concrete properties like, concrete compressive strength, split
