End of life recycling - concretecentre

A specific subset of recycled aggregates is recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) where the masonry content is limited to not more than five per cent. The performance characteristics of RCA are better than RA and consequently there are fewer restrictions on the use of RCA in concrete. Provision for the use of RCA in concrete is given in BS 8500-2.
