The TECASOS group of the UJI and the GIQUIMA group of the UPV have analysed the reuse of three types of recycled materials for producing conglomerates and moving towards a low-carbon economy.

A study carried out by researchers from the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) and the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has shown that recycled materials of ceramic origin can replace up to 25% of Portland cement and, in this way, increase the sustainability thresholds of the construction sector while moving towards a low-carbon economy. The results of this work have been published in the Journal of Cleaner Production.

«We have studied several parameters, such as the resistance, microstructure, structure and the sustainability of the materials in reuse thresholds of 0 to 50%, for example, and we have concluded that the use of these recycled materials can reach 25% in cement-based conglomerates, thus decreasing environmental impact», says UJI lecturer and researcher Lucía Reig.
