Om boka

Eco-Efficient Rendering Mortars: Use of Recycled Materials focuses on the use of waste materials into cement-based renders, discussing the origins, treatment processes and properties of relevant wastes. The book dispels mistrust through demonstrating the technical feasibility and environmental benefits of eco-efficient rendering mortars. It considers the characteristics of different waste products, such as aggregates, fillers, binders and additions. The functional requirements of renders are also discussed alongside their impact. Finally, the title considers the lifecycle and durability of modified mortars.

This book offers robust support and clear guidance on the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders.

Om forfatteren

Catarina Brazao Farinha works on incorporating waste in mortars. Her research examines the incorporation of fine ceramic waste in coating mortars. She has published widely, and is completing a doctorate on the incorporation of industrial waste in renders, as a substitute for sand, cement, or both. Jorge de Brito is a full professor of civil engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Georesources, Instituto Superior Tecnico, University ofLisbon. His main research topic is sustainable construction, particularly on the use of recycled aggregates in concrete and mortars. He has participated in 20 competitively financed research projects (four as the principal investigator) and supervised 20 PhD and 150 MSc theses. He is the author of 3 previous books, 20 book chapters, 250 journal and 450 conference papers. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Building Engineering, an associate editor of the European Journal of Environmental and Civil Engineering, a member of the editorial boards of 15 other international journals and a member of the CIB, FIB, RILEM, IABMAS and IABSE organisations. Professor Jorge de Brito is Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Georesources at the Instituto Superior Tecnico, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal. He has 20 years' experience in sustainable cementitious materials. His work includes coordinating five national and one international research project. He has published over 120 papers in leading journals, 60 conference papers, and 15 book chapters. He holds two patents, and has also written four books.
