A poster from a project funded by the Institution’s 2022/23 MSc Research Grants.

The aim of this project was to produce high-engineering-performance concrete mixture with the optimised use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) and waste glass cullet (WGC) that are created from construction and demolition.
