Better lightweight concrete with recycled glass • Aggregate ...

Poraver is an innovative lightweight aggregate that can reduce concrete weight by up to 50% with good compressive strength. Made from post-consumer recycled glass, Poraver is 80% lighter than silica sand, and can make 4000 psi concrete that weighs just 100 lbs/cf. It also makes concrete a more “green” material, increasing energy efficiency and reducing jobsite hazards.

Structural Lightweight Concrete Containing Recycled ...

Nov 15, 2017 · In this paper, Structural Lightweight Concrete (SLC) containing Recycled Lightweight Aggregate (RLA) is described. Damaged lightweight concrete was used as RLA by crushing it into fine particles, and used to replace fine limestone aggregate of up to 45% by weight. To enhance the strength development of SLC, silica fume and a superplasticizer were incorporated into the mixture. The compressive ...
