Paper Title:
Properties of Recycled-Cement Produced from Waste Concrete
  Abstract

This research aims to find a new way of “turning trash into treasure” for the waste concrete. In the research, waste concrete was first ground, then, after analyzing its mineral composition, combined with some other ingredients according to the modulus of the cement clinker to become raw materials of cement. Mixed raw materials were made to be a thin cake, and then sent into high temperature furnace (HTF) to sinter for a certain period of time. Properties of cement, such as the compressive strength, required water of standard consistence and setting time were tested. The composition and microstructure of clinker were analyzed with X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis and scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis. The experimental results showed that the main mineral components of clinker are C3S, β-C2S, CA2, CA, C3A, C4AF, the compressive strength of the recycled-cement is approximately equal to P.O32.5, there exists an optimum sintering temperature for the recycled-cement clinker with a given mix ratio of raw materials and content of seed crystal added,, and this temperature is usually much lower than the temperature adopted wildly in the cement plants.
