Recycled concrete becomes new concrete

Madumita Sadagopan, a PhD student in the civil engineering department at the University of Borås, runs the only research project in Sweden about concrete waste. She examines how to use recycled concrete in new concrete.

In the research project called RE:Concrete, Madumita Sadagopan will recycle concrete waste into new concrete, which can then be used for load bearing elements in the structural framework of buildings.
