 Incineration bottom ash This non-hazardous material is the residual material from waste combustion, and can be used for non-structural concrete applications such as trench and backfill, shore protection, concrete blocks, base and sub-base for road construction.  NEA
 Construction and demolition (C&D) waste C&D waste is produced when buildings, engineering works and roads are constructed, renovated or demolished. Useful resources such as recycled aggregates processed from demolished concrete, can be used for structural and non-structural concrete applications such as super-structural concrete elements, road kerbs, paving blocks, drains and sub-grade.   SamGreen Pte Ltd
