Abstract

The following experimentation has analyzed the issue concerning the management of waste originated by a company specialized in manufacturing AAC bricks. This is done not only to evaluate the chances of recovery, or the possibility of obtaining by-products following the correct storage of the End of Waste, but also to comply with the Consolidated Environment Act (Italian Judicial System) L.D n.152/2006 concerning waste management. L’AAC, material of relatively recent creation, offers countless properties mainly linked to its outstanding porosity. The AAC’s manufacturing presents some critical; at each cycle fractures tend to form in some bricks which, are consequently discarded. The objective of this work was to find a handy solution addressed to the recovery of materials in the construction industry field. A company of the field made itself available to verify the possibility to include said product in its production cycle for manufacturing double-layered self- locking floors, aiming to enhance both the scrap and their product. Manufacturing self-locking floors while trying to reduce the usage of natural resources could be a way to create a new component supporting the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, with features, performance and environmental impact in compliance to the product’s environmental statement.
