Using recycled materials in mortars helps both reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, and the use of natural resources in mortars. Industry, however, has been slow to trust and adopt waste products as raw materials for use in mortars. Eco-Efficient Rendering Mortars focuses on the incorporation of waste materials into cement-based renders, discussing the origins, treatment processes, and properties of relevant wastes. It aims to dispel mistrust through demonstrating the technical feasibility and environmental benefits of eco-efficient rendering mortars. The book considers the characteristics of different waste products, such as aggregates, fillers, binders and additions. The functional requirements of renders are discussed, alongside the impact of wastes on these requirements. Finally, the title considers the lifecycle of and durability of modified mortars. This book offers robust support for, and clear guidance on the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders. Presents evidence supporting the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders Characterizes wastes and considers how best to incorporate different kinds of waste into renders Gives detail on the technical efficiency and environmental impact of different waste materials on mortars Analyses the impact of wastes on render performance in terms of fresh state, mechanical, water, and durability Considers the lifecycle assessment and durability of modified mortars
