Abstract

The use of glass in concrete by the Concrete Technology Unit at the University of Dundee is discussed. The use of glass in construction applications stems from the emergence of quantities of the material remaining from recovery and recycling activities, due to inconsistencies between the quantities of different colors of glass manufactured and the color composition of glass waste streams. Glass act as a reactive form of silica, and can potentially also act as a source of alkalies, since it contains relatively large quantities of sodium.
