The breadth of studies being undertaken world-wide and the innovative ideas that are expressed in papers submitted are worthy of this important subject. It is also interesting to note that papers were offered from 30 countries, a sign of the increasing awareness of the need to preserve our natural resources and utilize to the full those with which we are more familiar. This book will contribute to the understanding of and solution of environmental problems concerning the re-use of waste materials in construction.

...The book provides a useful overview of the state-of-the-art of the use of waste materials in construction and will help the scientist and policy-maker to analyse the future needs of the field and to assess global opportunities. This book will contribute to the understanding of environmental problems concerning the re-use of 'waste' materials in construction, and hopefully to a wider acceptance of the use of such materials to reduce the environmental impact in a world that is increasing its resource appetite daily. It will especially help the technical understanding of the characteristics of the 'wastes' and the construction materials. I recommend this book for those readers interested in the state-of-the-art knowledge on resource re-use in the construction industry.
