Materials for Sustainable Building and Infrastructure - Recycled Aggregates (MEISAR) is the research project financed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia that wants to develop an eco-sustainable chain of concrete constructions by enhancing recycled aggregates.
The management of environmental and economic problems related to construction waste is an important issue for the construction industry considering the needs of sustainable development.
The reuse of recycled materials or production process waste may limit the extraction of raw materials, thus contributing to the protection of natural deposits, whose exploitation is very complex and subjected to strong regulatory constraints.
The project Materials for Sustainable Building and Infrastructure - Recycled Aggregates (MEISAR) try to respond to this problem. Specifically, the project is an action of the Top-Down cluster financed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia through: POR Sardegna FESR 2014/2020 - ASSE PRIORITARIO I “RICERCA SCIENTIFICA, SVILUPPO TECNOLOGICO E INNOVAZIONE” Azione 1.1.4 Sostegno alle attività collaborative di R&S per lo sviluppo di nuove tecnologie sostenibili, di nuovi prodotti e servizi.
The MEISAR aims to bring further contributions of knowledge and results that can be identified in three macro areas:
Water and recycled materials;
The durability of concrete with recycled aggregates;
- verification of the economic and environmental sustainability of recycled aggregates.
