Environmental Impact of Mortars with Mixed Recycled Aggregate

This study examined the manufacturing processes of recycled aggregates in general, as well as the physical and chemical characteristics of fine fraction of mixed recycled aggregates and their influence in the structure of mortars.

The study was executed through an experimental campaign that encompassed the characterization of the aggregate in question and the evaluation of the properties it grants to the mortar in its fresh and hardened state (during and after application). The results were compared with those of mortars made with a conventional aggregate of natural origins.
