Advance Upcycling of By-products in Binder and Binder-Based Materials focuses on research trends in binder and binder-based materials containing by-products. The book covers the properties of these materials, both physical and mechanical, and their durability, as well as their inner structure, both at the micro and nano-scale. The reuse of by-products within binder systems is also discussed as well as innovative approaches and advanced solutions for making cost-, ecology-, and environmental-friendly hydraulic binder and binder-based materials from the upcycling of by-products. The book also looks at additive manufacturing and explains the effects of by-products on the properties of binder and binder-based materials.

As a consequence of the popularity of additive manufacturing, various by-product materials, in terms of constructional application, are also identified. These include latent hydraulic supplements, activators of transport properties, and increase in inner strength and durability. The book will be an essential reference resource for academic and industrial researchers, materials scientists and civil engineers and all those who are working in the development of ‘greener’ construction materials and utilization of waste and other fine by-products in the production of environmentally-friendly concrete.
