SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Stronger concrete using recycled materials

An RMIT University researcher team, led by the School of Engineering’s Professor Yufei Wu, has invented a process it calls “Rubberized Concrete Processing Technology (RCP-Tech).” It says it can create materials up to 35 per cent stronger than traditional concrete, and can use recycled construction waste.

The researchers used a mix of course and fine aggregates, rubber tyre waste, cement and water, which was then compressed to its minimum volume using pressure in a customised mould.

Wu said RCP-Tech could "improve performance of any type of concrete material" and "[address] the performance issues affiliated with waste recycling in concrete."
