Eco-efficient Rendering Mortars Book Review:

Using recycled materials in mortars helps both reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, and the use of natural resources in mortars. Industry, however, has been slow to trust and adopt waste products as raw materials for use in mortars. Eco-Efficient Rendering Mortars focuses on the incorporation of waste materials into cement-based renders, discussing the origins, treatment processes, and properties of relevant wastes. It aims to dispel mistrust through demonstrating the technical feasibility and environmental benefits of eco-efficient rendering mortars. The book considers the characteristics of different waste products, such as aggregates, fillers, binders and additions. The functional requirements of renders are discussed, alongside the impact of wastes on these requirements. Finally, the title considers the lifecycle of and durability of modified mortars. This book offers robust support for, and clear guidance on the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders. Presents evidence supporting the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders Characterizes wastes and considers how best to incorporate different kinds of waste into renders Gives detail on the technical efficiency and environmental impact of different waste materials on mortars Analyses the impact of wastes on render performance in terms of fresh state, mechanical, water, and durability Considers the lifecycle assessment and durability of modified mortars

Product Innovation and Eco-Efficiency Book Review:

Prefaced by Björn Stigson, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, this book is one of the few that treats this topic by putting representatives of industry at centre stage. The book systematically addresses the drivers, the tools, and sector-specific elements that play a role in this process. The five chapters in Part I are devoted to a general introduction to eco-efficiency and the related challenges to industry in its implementation. Part II contains 23 case studies, almost all written by industrial experts who tell how they deal with the challenge: what the motivators are, what tools can be used and how they can be implemented, and what are the specific elements in sectors like building, electronics and packaging. These contributions come from multinationals like Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Akzo Nobel, Philips and Ciba-Geigy, as well as small and medium sized enterprises from such sectors as the building and furniture trades.
