Abstract

It is well known that the concrete in-dustry has a strong environmental impact on our planet. First, there are the huge volumes of material needed to produce the billions of tons of concrete worldwide each year. Then there are the CO2 emis-sions caused during the production of Portland ce-ment. Together with the energy requirements, water consumption and generation of construction and dem-olition waste, appears evidente as the concrete is not particularly environmentally friendly or compatible with the demands of sustainable development. In this context large number of papers focused on new concrete materials that would be more suitable with environmental point of view. Among these ma-terials, one of the most discussed is rubberized con-crete. Rubberized concrete is obtained by incorporat-ing rubber particles, obtained from recycled end-of-life tyres, as a replacement for mineral aggregates.
