Increasing the Use of Recycled Glass in Road Infrastructure

March 3, 2022

This webinar, presented by Dr James Grenfell and Dr Didier Bodin, focuses on the development of a specification on the supply of recycled crushed glass sand as part of a project to support increased use of recycled crushed glass (RCG) in road infrastructure. The project covers the use of RCG as a backfill and bedding sand, and within drainage, embankment fill, landscaping, and low risk concrete applications.

The webinar covers the technical basis behind the specification development and discusses the guidelines on how to process RCG.
