Abstract

In Europe, ceramic manufacturing produces an estimated 3 million tons per year of waste, and construction, and demolition waste (RCD) have become a problem; control agencies have issues with granting environmental licenses for the disposal of this waste, since it is not recycled or reused. In Bogotá, Colombia, 2 tons of waste are generated and at least 22 million tons are generated in the country, much more than those observed in other countries in northern Europe. Due to this, the use of ceramic recycling in asphalt mixtures was mechanically evaluated, in Spain and Colombia, using sizes similar to those used in natural aggregates, and favorable results were evidenced. Subsequently, dynamic tests were applied, such as resilient modules, confirming that the new mixtures can be a solution for the use of waste and the reduction of the costs of the bituminous mixtures, especially in certain routes, with low traffic or secondary utilities.
