Application of Construction Wastes in Geotechnical Engineering

The disposal of construction wastes in landfill is causing problems in a number of countries in terms of landfill capacity and space to create new landfills. Some countries (including China, Brazil, Portugal, and Uganda) have recognized this severe issue and are prioritizing efforts to combat construction wastes at the highest level. One immediate solution is to reduce the amount of wastes that are disposed of in landfills. Some construction wastes (e.g. soil spoils, demolition wastes, concrete, steel, rubber) have demonstrated good potential to be reused in geotechnical engineering which will also alleviate the demand on raw materials for construction and hence, resource depletion and environment deterioration. In addition, economic reports have shown good market return to recycle the construction wastes and hence encourages the use of waste in construction projects. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to share and highlight recent advances and innovative applications of construction wastes in geotechnical engineering.
