On the mechanical response of Hybrid Fiber Reinforced Concrete with Recycled and Industrial Steel Fibers
This paper summarizes the results of an experimental research on “sustainable” cementitious composites internally reinforced with industrial and recycled steel fibers, the latter being recovered from waste tires and employed ...
Analysis of hybrid waste-to-energy for medium-sized cities
Urban centers have a huge demand for electricity and the growing problem of the solid waste management generated by their population, a relevant social and administrative problem. The correct disposal of the municipal solid ...
An experimental study on the post-cracking behaviour of hybrid Industrial/Recycled steel fibre-reinforced concrete
This paper investigates the mechanical behaviour of FRC made with both Industrial and Recycled Steel Fibres recovered from waste tyres. Specimens of various mixtures, characterised by the same volume fraction of fibres, ...
PET containers in Brazil: Opportunities and challenges of a logistics model for post-consumer waste recycling
(Elsevier B.V., 2011-01-01)
The use of post-consumer materials is directly related to reducing the cost of production and extraction of natural resources. Non-recyclable materials are randomly disposed in the environment. Brazil is one of the largest ...
Recycling trachyte waste from the quarry to the brick industry: effects on physical and mechanical properties, and durability of new bricks
This work examined the possibility of recycling trachyte waste as temper for preparing new types of bricks, thus reducing disposal costs and requirements for increasingly vulnerable raw materials, ultimately reducing ...
Polypropylene composites manufactured from recycled carbon fibers from aeronautic materials waste
Carbon fiber composites are used in several industries such as, aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, sports goods and technical applications due to its low-weight, strength and stiffness. However, the technology of ...
Reverse Logistics Of E-waste In Developing Countries: Challenges And Prospects For The Brazilian Model
(Universidade Estadual de Campinas, 2016)
Characterization of waste from the cutting of marble for the production of synthetic slags
The quality of produced steel, especially from secondary refining using synthetic slag, is of great importance. In this context, the use of industrial waste in the production of synthetic slag is considered an important ...
