Emerson Verzegnassi, Rosa Cristina Cecche Lintz, Luisa Andréia Gachet Barbosa, Ana Elisabete P.G. de Avila Jacintho


The world is now pressing for decreasing emissions of greenhouse gases, the reduction and possible revocation of culling and disposal of materials resulting from manufacturing processes that pollute and degrade the environment. Among these problems unused tires has become a major problem for the environment due to years of provisions incorrect. On motion of reuse, recycling and waste disposal, construction has become a major partner of the other production areas to reduce several types of industrial wastes by reusing these materials, the introduction of these materials in construction products civil, replacement of traditional materials and various other ways. Have produced different concrete mixtures without and with different percentages of rubber tires. The results indicate a clear loss of strength both in compression as in tension.

Key words: alternative materials, materials and components in construction, materials recycling.
