ABSTRACT
Because of exhaustive consumption of non-renewables resources of energy in all
sectors, saving trends at all levels is an absolute necessity. In this respect an important role is given to the industry sector. Reductions of the energy consumptions can be achieved by recycling waste and reuse them as raw materials or as secondary raw materials construction sector. Waste recycling and recovery is an imperative measure necessary to reduce consumption of non-renewable raw materials. By introducing in the industry circuit materials obtained through waste recycling, significant savings of natural resources and of energy can be obtained. Obtaining building materials by using various industry wastes is one of the ways that the scientific community is called to provide in order to ensure a sustainable future for humanity. Concrete is a material widely used in huge volumes, that has a real potential of embedding waste.
