Advancements in Process Development and Mechanical Properties of Recycled Glass Building Materials Through Experimentation and Analytical Modeling
Over the past 50 years U.S. consumers and municipalities have made efforts to decrease landfill waste and reduce raw material extraction through recycling. The rate of recycling has risen tenfold over that time period and many materials, such as paper and aluminum, can be efficiently and effectively recycled into new products. ...
Compressive and Flexural Properties of Porous Building Materials Created from Contaminated Waste Glass
A new, energy efficient recycling technology is being developed that is compatible with post-consumer and post-industrial waste glass. This technology may be used to produce sustainable materials for the green building industry. During the process, materials are consolidated through cold isostatic pressing and then densified ...
