New recycled waste construction products

The West of Melbourne has the world’s largest Basaltic plain and this is leading to detrimental impacts on housing and road infrastructures.

For this reason, this research will perform geotechnical and structural investigations on the utilization of recycled glass and plastics and demolition wastes in concrete house slab systems and associated road pavements in Melbourne’s west.

This research will:

  • discover new solutions for the application of recycled materials in building and construction products
  • advance the circular economy through increased demand for waste/recycled material.
