Subject: Re: Construction waste recycling (C. P. Gildersleve)

January 10, 1997

Dear C. P. Gildersleve,

I m hesitant to get too involved with a dissertation candidate asking a very general question on C D recycling. The Research Library for RCRA has many sources on many sub-topics of C D recycling. Ask something specific.

For general information, the Proceedings of RILEM in Japan, which throws at least 1 conference every two years, is a good source. Also, think historically!!!!!: What nations needed to know about using C D as raw materials, thus must have invented technologies to use construction wastes for raw materials. Who was resource-poor as well? Devastated economies! Think that way from 1945 to the present, and you will have theorized the actual existence of many actually existing
templates for the info that you seek. ISWA (The International Solid Waste Assn.) is a good starting point. I ll give you another hint: think Dutch and German.
Also, there is currently a thin trade magazine called C D Debris Recycling. Their telephone in Chicago is 312-726-2802.

Good luck from the Research Library for RCRA, US Environmental Protection Agency-New England!
