The European Commission has initiated the Priority Waste Streams Program for six waste streams for the production of precast concrete products made with recycled demolition material. The considerable properties include specific gravity, absorption, fineness, and angularity and the effects of concrete and masonry-derived aggregates were studied separately. A heavy metal block was used to compress the concrete while vibration and effects concentrated on modifying the previously used frame with the electric hammer. The strengths obtained confirmed that the replacement levels did not cause any significant strength reduction.
