Interest in sustainable development and environmental issues is intensifying. The environmental performance of the construction industry and the impact that construction materials have on the environment throughout their life cycle is increasingly under the scrutiny of local, national and international environmental pressure groups and consequently the general public.
Sustainable use of new and recycled materials in coastal and fluvial construction gives practical guidance on how to apply the principles of sustainable construction in coastal and fluvial construction by assessing the environmental impacts of the alternative project options. It provides detailed information, including a software tool, to enable those involved with engineering projects to enhance the sustainability of construction projects by choosing project options that have the least environmental impacts. The potential uses, durability and environmental issues of reclaimed and recycled materials are detailed in the manual, with particular attention given to how those materials might be incorporated into coastal and fluvial structures. This essential resource provides practical guidance in an area where little information is available.
Sustainable use of new and recycled materials in coastal and fluvial construction will prove invaluable to those involved in all areas of coastal and fluvial construction.
