Concrete is the favoured material of choice in the construction industry worldwide for applications in various forms, often under demanding conditions and increasingly specified with several durability performance parameters. The ingredients to make concrete are in huge demand and especially aggregates with essential characteristics fit for use are in short supply. This entails not only increase in cost of construction as more and more countries must import them but also depletes the finite good quality natural resources available on this planet. Nevertheless, these are inherent challenges that need to be addressed by a holistic approach both via research and practice, leading to responsible informed choices for construction to become even more sustainable. In this thematic issue, we invite papers relating to recycling and reuse of C&D waste in concrete with focus both on research and application. Case studies are particularly welcome as we intend to make this issue a ready reference for researchers and practitioners alike. All the manuscripts will be subjected to double blind peer review process and the areas of contribution are indicated as follows.

  • Use of recycled concrete aggregates for precast structural concrete
  • Application of recycled concrete aggregates in HPC/FRC/UHPC
  • Recycled construction and demolition waste for geopolymer binders and concrete
  • Recycled concrete aggregates for self-compacting concrete
  • 3D printing of concrete using recycled concrete aggregate
  • Use of recycled concrete aggregates for marine concretes
  • Processing technologies for manufacturing high quality recycled aggregates
  • CO2 treatment of coarse and fine recycled concrete aggregates
  • Exemplar projects constructed using recycled aggregates
  • Architectural perspectives on recycled aggregates in the built environment
  • Guidelines for valorisation of recycled aggregates in concrete
  • Effective characterisation of recycled aggregates towards use in concrete
  • Recycled construction and demolition waste for sustainable pavement materials
  • Policy enablers for wider use of recycled aggregates
