At the end of the 1980s, ecology for quality of life and human health came to public awareness. In a survey carried out in the European Community (limited to just 12 countries) in 1982, Italy became aware of the deterioration of the countryside, environmental and noise pollution, and waste disposal. It is waste management precisely that led to the scientific study into the recycling of waste into construction materials, and also of C&D procedures through the development of the selective demolition of buildings. In the twenty-first century, these considerations have seen the experimentation and technological application of mortars and concretes with a structural resistance, even under seismic stresses. Components for concrete such as glass foam spheres, deriving from the expansion treatment of glass scraps, high impact polystyrene HIPS, undifferentiated plastic microspheres for asphalt, light partition blocks from the compacting of plastic bags, treatment of paper and tetrapack wrappers, such as newspaperwood and other panels made from cellulose fibers with specialized performance levels. The deductions of this discussion are aimed at critically evaluating the concrete applicability of the experiments underway.
