Abstract

Following an example of the world's great powers  that developed the recycling industry after natural disasters and wars, the paper points to the possibility of using large quantities of construction and demolition waste, generated as a result of the recent floods in the B&H and Serbia. Based on the years of extensive experimental research, and the research conducted by eminent experts, an overview is provided of the most basic properties and application of recycled aggregate concrete. It has been shown that the application of coarse recycled concrete aggregate, as the component materials in the concrete mixtures, it is possible to produce structural concrete that can be satisfactory and even with high quality, which primarily depends on the characteristics of crushed demolished concrete.
